Luiza Bialasiewicz is a political geographer and Professor of European Governance in the Department of European Studies. She has been a Visiting Professor at the College of Europe, Natolin since 2013, where she teaches an annual course on European Geopolitics.

Her work focuses on the political geographies of European foreign policy and EU geopolitics, with particular attention to the EU's external borders and the out-sourcing of migration management. Her most recent research  has examined the changing spatialities of migrant reception within urban spaces and anti-migrant movements.

She is a member of the editorial board of the following journals

Her most recent book is the edited collection  Europe in the World: EU Geopolitics and the Making of European Space, published by Ashgate in its 'Critical Geopolitics' series.
