Paul Reef (1995) is a PhD candidate at the Department of History, Art History and Classics at Radboud University, specialised in the modern political history of Europe, sport history, and international organizations.

His PhD research explores the emergence and transnationalization of public protest against hosting the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup as well as how the organizers of these mega sport events have responded to protest over time.

He completed both his bachelor’s degree in History (2017) and research master’s degree in Historical Studies (2019) cum laude at Radboud University. His master’s thesis explored how the European Community tried to bridge the gap with 'the man in the street' via consumer policy and information campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition, he did a research internship on the League of Nations at Aarhus Universitet (2018), participated in an Honours research program on the internationalization of Russian academia on behalf of the Netherlands Institute in St. Petersburg (2017-18), and conducted field research on North Macedonian memory culture (2016-17).
