Prof. Luiza Bialasiewicz is a political geographer and Professor of European Governance in the Department of European Studies. She is also Visiting Professor at the College of Europe, Natolin, where she teaches an annual course on European Geopolitics
Bialasiewicz is the Academic Director of the Amsterdam Centre for European Studies (ACES)
and one of the Theme Leaders of the Centre's 'Europe in the World' research theme
Most broadly, Bialasiewicz's work examines the evolution of EU geopolitical imaginaries and the emergence of a European 'geopolitical subject' over the past two decades. She has also written extensively on the geopolitics of the EU's migration management, with particular attention to the Mediterranean and North Africa, examining various forms of externalisation of border and migration management. Her current research looks to the ways in which geopolitical agendas 'touch down' in European domestic politics, with a focus on far-right movements and parties. Her most recent books are the co-edited collection Spaces of Tolerance: Changing Geographies and Philosophies of Religion in Today's Europe (2019) and the edited volume Europe in the World: EU Geopolitics and the Making of European Space (2011; paperback edition 2016).
