Projects per year
My Research interests bring together the areas of international and EU migration law, migration governance, human rights law, vulnerability theory and citizenship. My research is multidisciplinary and has a strong socio-legal dimension.
I have extensively published in the areas of migrants’ social and economic rights, with a focus on irregular migrants and asylum seekers’ right to health care; migrants and the European Convention on Human Rights; human rights and migration governance; vulnerability theory and migration law and policy; EU asylum law and policy; migrants and citizenship; and refugee integration.
I have conducted research projects with the Scottish Refugee Council and the British Red Cross in the area of migrants and asylum seekers’ rights.
I was a visiting scholar at the University of Montreal and the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
I represent the University of Strathclyde on the Board of Directors of the Glasgow-based Ethnic Minorities Law Centre in my capacity as Special Director.
I currently teach European Union Law (undergraduate core class on LLB and BA programmes) and International Migration Law (postgraduate class).
