Much of my work over the past years has concentrated on policy (e.g. serving, between 2006-2012, as member of the European Commission’s Member States Expert Group on Maritime Policy, and, between 2009-2012, as member of the Working Group for an Integrated Maritime Policy in the Mediterranean). I have recently returned to full-time academic work after a three-year spell as a director at the European Commission-League of Arab States Liaison Office, where I am still an advisor. My current research projects include: identity and memory in the western Libyan interior, especially in the wake of the revolution of 2011; Malta’s Libya policy since 1964; and the prospects and institutional implications of scenario analysis in Euro-Arab relations.

Anthroplogy Study-Exchanges in the EU
The Department of Anthropological Sciences has a number of active Erasmus links to various Anthropology Departments in the EU (see list below).  This results in a two-way exchange. We have hosted students from various universities who normally spend one term/semester with us. This enhances student-learning experiences.  University of Malta students of Anthropology can also take advantage of these exchange links to pursue their studies abroad.
