Associate Professor


Phil Triadafilopoulos is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He teaches courses in political science and public policy at the University of Toronto Scarborough and the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy and conducts research in the areas of immigration and citizenship policy in Europe and North America.

Triadafilopoulos received his PhD in Political Science for the New School for Social Research and is a former Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow. He held a two-year visiting research fellowship at the Institute for Social Sciences at Humboldt University, was a Visiting Professor at the Hertie School of Governance and a Visiting Fellow at the Institute for German Studies at the University of Birmingham.

Triadafilopoulos’ current research examines the extension of public funding for Islamic religious education in Canada and Germany. He is also interested in (i) how political parties in Europe and North America are adapting their electoral strategies in response to more culturally diverse electorates, and how this influences immigration policymaking; (ii) the degree to which Canada is “exceptional” with respect to immigration politics and policymaking; and (iii) the role of established “national” churches in the politics of minority religious accommodation in Europe.

Triadafilopoulos is the author of Becoming Multicultural: Immigration and the Politics of Membership in Canada and Germany (UBC Press, 2012), the editor of Wanted and Welcome? Policies for Highly Skilled Immigrants in Comparative Perspective (Springer, 2013), and the co-editor of Segmented Cities? How Urban Contexts Shape Ethnic and Nationalist Politics (UBC Press, 2014) and European Encounters: Migrants, Migration and European Societies since 1945 (Ashgate, 2003).

Triadafilopoulos’ scholarly publications have appeared in Ethnicities, German Politics, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Social Politics, German Politics and Society, the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Social Research, the Review of International Studies, Citizenship Studies, and The Journal of Politics.
