Tareq Sydiq

is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for Conflict Studies and Coordinator of the Postcolonial Hierarchies in Peace & Conflict Network. His research is centered around questions of state-society relationships particularly within authoritarian contexts, reframing and reinterpreting state power through the lens of protest and societal resistance.

He has previously worked on interest articulation and negotiation in Iran, with fieldwork during the protest movements in 2017/18. Currently, he is working on transformations of opportunity structures, e.g. in the post-Taliban takeover in Afghanistan and in the post-colonial period in Pakistan. He has previously worked as a JSPS fellow at the Center for Relational Studies on Global Crises at Chiba University in Japan.
