Short biographical note

I graduated from the Panteion High School of Political and Social Sciences (actual Panteion University)  with a Degree on Political Science. I have received my Ph.D.  in Political Science in 1997 from the University of Sorbonne  (Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne), with a specialization in the French Enlightenment.

I taught European History (EPO10), from 2002 to 2010, and Sociology (EPO42), from 2017 to now,  in the Hellenic Open University (EAP). I  taught also in the Postgraduate program on Political Science and History of the Panteion University a lesson on “Theories of Natural Law” from 2012 to 2018, and I teach in the Postgraduate program of the Department of Political Science and International relation of the University of the Peloponnese (PEDIS) from 2015 to this date. I taught also in the National School of Public Administration and Local Government (ESSDA)the course of “Political Philosophy”  and to its affiliated Institute of Education (INEP) in 206-7, and in the open education program of “Plato’s Academy”.

My main area of interest is on the one hand the pre-modern  political theories in their socio- historical context, focusing in the 17th and 18th centuries, researching the normative and anthropological aspects of the modern constitution, within the political discourse of their era.

On the other hand, I’m interested in the terms of  the constitution and research of the political structuring of the postmodern condition. In that framework,  I study authors that analyze the transnational constitution of policies, like James Rosenau,  or the historical and technical conditions of the realization of the democratic regime, like Pierre Rosanvallon. Lastly my research has shifted also to the study of the sociology of development
