Dr. Haykel's research is concerned with the political and social tensions that arise from questions about religious identity and authority. He was educated at the University of Oxford where he received his doctorate in 1998 in Oriental Studies with an emphasis on Islam and history. Much of his teaching and research lies at the juncture of the intellectual, political and social history of the Middle East with particular emphasis on the countries of the Arabian Peninsula.
