Tobias Cremer

PhD Student, Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS)

Tobias' doctoral research focuses on the relationship between religion and the new wave of right-wing populism in Western Europe and North America. In particular, the project aims to understand the ways in which traditionally secularist right-wing populist parties are seeking to employ Christian symbols and language as cultural identity markers, and how believers and Church authorities are reacting to such co-optation attempts.

Prior to coming to Cambridge Tobias was a McCloy Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, where he received a Master in Public Policy. He also holds a B.A. in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Sciences Po Paris and an MPhil in Politics and International Studies from Cambridge. He has gathered work experience in the German Parliament, the German Federal Foreign Office and in Management Consulting, and acted as an advisor to the German Foreign Office's strategic communication unit during his time at Harvard.
