Alex is officially French, Greek, and now also British. He grew up in Brussels and has lived in England almost continuously since 1997. He therefore feels like a European foreigner everywhere. He completed his academic studies at the University of Kent, covering disciplines such as Economics (BA), International Relations and European Studies (MA), and Politics and Government with some Theology and Religious Studies (PhD). He worked for both the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University prior to joining Loughborough in 2010. His research interests include political violence, pacifism and nonviolence studies, anarchist studies, political thought, politics and religion, and critical security studies. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pacifism and Nonviolence: https://brill.com/view/journals/jpn/jpn-overview.xml. He has a keen interest in pedagogical innovations and publishes top essays from his students on Socratic Hive: https://socratichive.wordpress.com/.
