Tobias Borck



I am a PhD candidate at the Strategy and Security Institute and the Institute for Arab and Islamic Studies. My research focuses on interventionism in Arab foreign policies, looking in particular at regional understandings of security, stability and order. My supervisors are Dr Lise Storm and Professor Gareth Stansfield.

I grew up in Hamburg, Germany, but have been living and studying in the UK since 2009. Over the past five years I have obtained two degrees from the University of Exeter: a BA in Arabic and Middle East Studies and an MA in Applied Security Strategy. During this time, I have also spent time studying and working in Egypt and Morocco. Besides my doctoral studies, I am working as an independent researcher and analyst focusing on Middle East security issues.
