  • About

    Katie is a part-time Senior Researcher in Political Science.  

    She is the Principal Investigator of the ERC Starting Grant Reintegrate Project. This project will develop a conceptual understanding of what is reintegration governance, its implementation and effectiveness and a new theoretical framework of how different forms of reintegration governance shape returnees’ reintegration outcomes.  

    Since 2019, she has participated in the ADMIGOV project leading the work on sustainable reintegration and a Work Package on development interventions and migration aspirations in Ethiopia, Lebanon, Mali and Turkey.

    Katie's research is in the areas of return and reintegration, irregular migration, and migration and development.
