BIOGRAPHY

Dr Björn Brenner researches and lectures on contemporary Middle Eastern politics. Since 2008, his research has focused on Syrian, Lebanese, Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian politics. One focus has been to closely follow and understand the political situation in the Gaza Strip and the tensions between the various actors there. Much of this research has taken place on location in the Middle East.

In 2009, Björn studied at Damascus University and during the following years, 2010-2015, he conducted field studies in Syria, Lebanon and Gaza. By means of his participant observation approach, staying with families with varying political connections, he was able to interview both leaders and activists of several of the region's more controversial political factions.

On a more general level, Björn's research has dealt with issues connected with Islamism and democracy and to what extent these concepts could be regarded as compatible in practice. His doctoral thesis addresses the overarching question of how Islamists who have succeeded in reaching positions of political power have then come to govern in practice.

In 2015, Björn Brenner was appointed Research Fellow at the French Institute of the Near East in Amman, Jordan, where he has pursued his postdoctoral project on Jordanian-Palestinian customary dispute resolution venues and techniques, and the ways in which they intersect with the formal streams of justice.

Björn has a wide-ranging interest in politics, religion and society in the western part of the Middle East, which includes everything from militant extremism to more non-political phenomena such as regional popular music and dialectical differences in the Arabic language.
