I'm Professor Emeritus of Politics of Middle East and North Africa at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

My work has been mainly in the area of the examination of power and the abuses of power across the Middle East and North Africa: how in different forms it's been used, abused and mediated by people who are both in control of States and people who try to resist the power of states.
