Giorgos Poulimenakos holds a bachelor's degree in Social Anthropology from Panteion Univeristy of Social and Political sciences, Athens, Greece (2011) and a Master's degree in Anthropology of development and social transformation from the University of Sussex, UK (2014). His master's thesis was on the reconfiguration of urban spatialities in Athens in relation to the formation and reformation of political subjectivities during the Greek crisis. For this thesis he conducted fieldwork in an anarchist squatted social center in Athens, in the context of an intensification of the Greek state's repressive strategy against squats.He has also conducted fieldwork in south Peloponnese, Greece, as part of PRECARIAT, a research project that studied labour market deregulation in Greece during the socioeconomic crisis. This project was based on the Faculty of Social Science at Vrije University of Amsterdam.
