Angelina is the e-Journal’s Senior Editor, and has been involved our work since 2019.
As Senior Editor, Angelina hopes to facilitate broader coverage of diverse, highly topical yet often overlooked themes characterising the Middle East and North Africa, while also expanding the e-Journal to include the Baltic, Russia and the Caucasus.
Born in Lithuania, Angelina holds a BA in International Relations from the University of Exeter and an MSc in Middle Eastern Politics from Birkbeck College, University of London. Her area of academic specialisation is Jordanian domestic politics with a focus on Islamist discourse as well as broader regional developments in the domain of political Islam.
A keen advocate of transnational knowledge exchange and inter-cultural dialogue, Angelina has participated in various educational initiatives aiming to nurture young people’s social and political engagement while encouraging informed debate, be it promoting Politics studies to college finalists; facilitating events on cultural sharing and understanding for international students; or assisting with youth conference organisation at the heart of the EU in Brussels. Angelina’s professional journey has so far been dedicated to project management in the higher education sector, both in the Baltic, the UK and internationally.
