On June 1, I started my new position as a NWO funded Rubicon Research Fellow with the Global Governance Programme, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute. I will be based at EUI for the next two years while conducting research on irregular migrants decision making factors in Italy. My project aims to address the follow three questions:
- How do irregular migrants’ chose to apply for asylum in Italy, migrate onwards or stay in Italy without making an asylum claim?
- How do irregular migrants access and consume information on asylum policies and destinations in Europe and how is this information used?
- How do irregular migrants’ decisions change over time and space?
I look forward to being in this dynamic and inspiring environment for the next two years to learn and further my research.
