Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, International Relations, Comparative Politics

Research Topic

My specialization is Middle Eastern studies, International Relations, and comparative politics. I especially focus on contemporary Islamic political thought and movement, and try to reconsider the dynamics of the Middle East politics today as well as on-going IR through the analysis of them. To build “better” international society in the 21st century, we have to think over the significance of “Islam” (and being Islamic) in contemporary world.

Message for Applicants

You are required to clarify and at least confirm that you really have something you wish to know and understand through academic work at the graduate school BEFORE your application. I personally would not take care those who do not reach this requirement.
