Kristin Fabbe is a Jakurski Family associate professor in the Business, Government, and International Economy Unit at Harvard Business School. Her primary expertise is in comparative politics, with a regional focus on the greater Mediterranean region. Her first book, Disciples of the State: Religion and State-Building in the Former Ottoman World (Cambridge University Press, 2019) examines the role of religious elites, institutions, and attachments in state-building and modernization initiatives in Greece, Turkey, and Egypt.
She is currently researching a second major project on social cohesion and crises, particularly economic shocks, severe austerity measures, and large demographic changes. In other work, Kristin uses surveys and qualitative methods to examine legacies of violence, post-conflict reconciliation, refugees and forced-migration, secularization, democratic durability and state-business relations. She has conducted fieldwork in Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Cyprus.
