WEBINAR: Discretion and policymaking in migration control

11. June 2020 @ 14:15 - 15:45

Federica Infantino is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Group for Research on Ethnic Relations, Migration and Equality at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. Building on in-depth ethnographic research in the organizations that put a European instrument of migration control into practice, which is the Schengen visa policy, Infantino will shed light on the uses of discretion in deciding ‘who gets in’ and the ways in which policy is made on the ground.

Federica Infantino holds a PhD in political and social sciences from Université Libre de Bruxelles and a PhD in political science, comparative political sociology, from Sciences Po Paris. Her main research interests focus on the practices of migration and border control in comparative perspective, transnational actors and dynamics of policy change, the involvement of non-state actors in governments’ functions. Her project “Practicing Immigration Detention and Deportation in the EU. Actors, Organizations and Transnational Policymaking from Below” is funded by the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS-FRS).
