Tavis D. Jules
In 2008, I received my Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.) in International Educational Development, with a specialization in International Educational Policy Studies from Teachers College, Columbia University. I then took up a position at Freedom House as a blogger and later curriculum specialist focusing on Iran. From 2009 to 2011 I worked at the Global Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) Foundation and held numerous posting there, and I also founded the first Bi-annual GRLI Partner Magazine, Global Responsibility (that is still being published). In 2011, I took up an academic position at Loyola University Chicago. Since being at Loyola, I taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level in the Cultural and Educational Policy Studies program an online in the International Higher Education Program, which are both housed in the School of Education. I am the Book Review Editor of the Caribbean Journal of International Relations and Diplomacy. I have authored numerous books and articles including Neither World Polity nor Local or National Societies: Regionalization in the Global South the Caribbean Community (Peter Lang Press, 2012); Educational Transitions in Post-Revolutionary Spaces: Islam, Security and Social Movements in Tunisia (with Teresa Barton, Bloomsbury Press, 2017); Is ‘Small’ Always Small and ‘Big’ Always Big?
