Andrew Milne

Currently working at Sciences Po Toulouse, a French Grande-École, in the SW of France. Teaching years 1 and 5 of the Master's Programme, I have, over the 25 years that I have been teaching there, held positions of Programme Manager for the International and Comparative Studies Diploma and Pedagogical Supervisor, as well as Deputy Director of International Relations. I hold a PhD in Languages, Litterature and Civilisation Studies of English-speaking countries from the University of Toulouse II Jean-Jaurès and my research is related to the notion of national identity and in particular the integration of Sikhs in both the United Kingdom and France as a comparative study.
