Personal profile

Personal Statement

My Research interests bring together the areas of migration studies, human rights law, vulnerability theory and citizenship as well as EU and national asylum and migration laws and policies. 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; vulnerability theory; EU asylum and migration laws and policies; national asylum and immigration laws and policies (UK, France and Canada); migrants and citizenship; refugee integration; migration governance; and EU citizenship.

I have conducted research projects with the Scottish Refugee Council and the British Red Cross.

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).

I am the Law Schools’ Director for Postgraduate Research Students.  I am a member of the Board of the Graduate School of the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences (HaSS) and I sit on the HaSS Board of Study

I welcome applications for postgraduate research (PhD and MPhil) in the following areas:

-          Migrants’ human rights.

-          EU asylum and migration laws and policies.

-          Global migration governance.

-          International migration law.
