PhD candidate, School for Business and Society, Glasgow Caledonian University

I am a PhD student at Glasgow Caledonian University. My PhD project focuses on the role of agency in the securitization of migration, taking policing in Hungary as a case study. My dissertation analyses why and how political discourses with the aim of securitizing migration affect the enactment of border and migration control policies. Specifically, the dissertation looks into how police officers involved in border and migration control dissolve or sustain securitizing political narratives. I am a former police officer and earned my master’s degree (Distinction) in Criminology and Forensic Psychology at Middlesex University London. Prior to joining GCU I interned for the UN Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Cambodia. My latest article is “Controlling Irregular Migration: International Human Rights Standards and the Hungarian Legal Framework” in 2018 with European Journal of Criminology
