Doctoral supervision

I have supervised five PhDs to successful completion:

  • Erica Consterdine - UK immigration policy change under New Labour (ESRC funded)
  • Birce Demiryontar - EU-Turkish migration relations
  • Satoko Horii - Frontex and the evolution of cooperation on European border controls (JASSO funded)
  • Rebecca Partos - The UK Conservative Party's immigration policy in the postwar period (ESRC funded)
  • Tom Southerden - The political impact of human rights litigation in UK immigration cases (ESRC funded)

I currently supervise five PhD students:

  • Vainius Bartasevicius - Comparative citizenship in Central and East European countries (ESRC funded)
  • Katy Budge - Normative Power Europe and the refugee crisis (LPS scholarship)
  • Naoko Hashimoto - Japanese refugee resettlement (funded by the Nippon Foundation)
  • Cagri Hurmuzlu - Turkish international migration relations and response to refugees
  • Nicole Ostrand - Externalisation of UK border controls

I am interested in supervising PhD research on the politics of immigration, migration governance and policymaking, particularly in a British and/or European Union context, race and anti-racism, and citizenship.
