Emin Poljarevic is Associate Professor, Sociology of Religion, at Uppsala University. His PhD thesis from 2012 (EUI) examined a range of motivations behind mobilization of young Muslim Brotherhood activists in Egypt right before the popular uprisings 2011. Two consecutive research grants (2013-2014 and 2015-2017) allowed him to expand his research scope by studying religious activism within various strands of Salafism at the University of Edinburgh and Qatar University. In addition to his interests in studying the mobilization dynamics within Islamism and Salafism, his research focuses on investigation of the role of religion and, in particular, theology in violence oriented Muslim activism.
