Ms Sofia Tzamarelou
PhD Student


After receiving my four-year Bachelor's degree in International and European Studies from the University of Piraeus, I moved to the UK where I pursued two Master's degrees on intelligence and security studies from Aberystwyth University and Brunel University.

I am currently doing my PhD on intelligence democratisation in Greece, Spain and Portugal. The study is exploring if and to what extent those three intelligence services were democratised after their dictatorships fell in the 1970s and aims to break new ground around the Southern European arch given that most research around this topic focuses on the US and UK whilst any material written on Greece, Spain or Portugal is not available in English.
