Jérémie graduated with honors from Fordham University in 2016 with a B.A. in Political Science and Middle East Studies, with a minor in Arabic. His senior thesis analyzed interactions between political activists and foreign NGOs in Jordan, and their effects on collective action. His time in the region includes over a year of work, research, and volunteering in Jordan, as well as three years spent in Egypt from 2009-2012 prior to college. Before enrolling in MAAS, Jérémie was a Research Associate at the National Endowment for Democracy’s International Forum for Democratic Studies, where his portfolio included a study of protest movements and secularization in Iran. Jérémie’s current research continues to explore social movements and contentious politics in the Middle East, especially how these phenomena have interacted with foreign development efforts and shifting strategies of authoritarian power-sharing. His analysis on these subjects has appeared in numerous outlets including: The Center for International Media Assistance, The Global Investigative Journalism Network, The Democracy Digest, and La Formoisie.
