Professor of Middle East Politics, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean    01392 264105       @grvstansfield


I am a Political Scientist and my academic home is the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, where I am currently the Pro-Vice-Chancellor & Executive Dean for the Faculty of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences. My research has focused on the modern politics of the Middle East, with particular reference to Iraq and Kurdistan, and thematic areas including conflict and conflict management, post-conflict rehabilitation, and state-building. I have recently completed a 5-year project funded by the ESRC addressing approaches to managing contestation over intra-state territories, which included extensive research in Iraq, Kurdistan, and areas previously controlled by the Islamic State organisation.
