    Dimitris Soudias is a visiting fellow at the Center for Conflict Studies. Previously, he was the head of library and information at the Goethe-Institut Athens, where he designed and implemented a major reconceptualization of the library together with his team. Here, he practically employed his theoretical work on and with the commons movement in Greece for the purpose of conceiving of the library a space of commoning open (access to) knowledge against the backdrop of the creeping economization and capitalization of everyday life.

    He also held research fellowships at the Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies at Philipps University Marburg, and at the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the Free University of Berlin. He was also a visiting fellow at the Collaborative Research Center “Dynamics of Security. Processes of Securitization in historical perspective” at Philipps University Marburg, and a consultant with the Yemen Polling Center, Sana’a.

    Dimitris received his doctoral training in political science (Summa Cum Laude) from Philipps University Marburg. He holds a Graduate Diploma in Middle East Studies from the American University in Cairo and a Dipl. Pol. in Political Science from Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg.
