Ferdinand Eibl

Ferdinand Eibl is a Research Officer at the LSE Middle East Centre, currently working in a research project entitled ‘The comparative political economy of the MENA region.’ Led by Steffen Hertog, the project aims to place MENA-specific political economy issues in a wider comparative perspective. In his research, Ferdinand focuses specifically on the areas of distributive politics, social policies, and crony capitalism in the Middle East and North Africa. More recently, he has started to work on civil-military relations and coups, and the electoral sociology of Islamism. He holds an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies and a PhD in Politics from the University of Oxford.
