Bassam Tibi was born in 1944 in Damascus/Syria to an Islamic ashraf family (aristocracy) and educated there. He migrated to Europe in 1962 and he was, from 1973 until his retirement in Fall 2009, Professor for International Relations at the University of Göttingen, Germany. Parallel to his tenure there he is a visiting non-resident A. D. White Professor-at-Large at Cornell University, USA. In the last quarter of the 20th century he had 17 visiting professorships in four continents in addition to lecturing at 30 universities. Tibi's fellowships include those at universities such as Harvard, Princeton and Michigan Ann Arbor in the US, NUS/Singapore and the Islamic Hidayatullah State University of Jakarta in addition to other visiting positions in the world of Islam (e.g. al-Ahram Center in Cairo, etc.). He also teaches a course on Islam and world politics at The Diplomatic Academy in Vienna. He is author of the book Islam between Culture and Politics, re-released in a new edition in 2005 (first edition 2001); among his eight books written in English is Tibi's book (partly completed at Cornell): Political Islam, World Politics and Europe. Democratic Peace and Euro-Islam vs. Global Jihad (London and New York: Routledge 2008). In 2009 Routledge published Tibi's most recent book Islam's Predicament with Cultural Modernity. Religious Reform and Cultural Change. In 2008/09 Tibi was working on a new book on Islam and Islamism at Yale University as senior research fellow to be published by Yale University Press.
