was awarded a three years (2019-2021) funding as part of the European

Doha and Singapore, and to contribute to the reflection on the role of

such educational and cultural infrastructures in constructing civic

spaces and stimulating interactions across diverse communities.


Dr Molho received a BA in Middle Eastern

studies and a MA in urban studies from Sciences Po Paris and completed

his PhD in geography in 2016 at the University of Angers, France. In his

doctoral research, Jeremie analysed how cities outside of the West
