Leila Hadj Abdou

Reserach associate in the Politics of International Migration, University of Sheffield

I am currently a research associate in the "Prospects for International Migration" (MIGPROSP) (www.migrationgovernance.org) project led by Professor Andrew Geddes.

The MIGPROSP project asks how politicians, officials and a range of other actors understand international migration and how these understandings shape the possibilities and limits of migration governance. The project has a global focus, looking in particular at Europe, North America, South America and the Asia-Pacific region.

Prior to joining the University of Sheffield I was a Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations (CTR, http://transatlantic.sais-jhu.edu/) at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington D.C.

In 2013 I obtained my PhD degree from the European University Institute.

Previously, I have worked as a researcher at the Institute for Political Sciences at the University of Vienna. I was a visiting researcher at the University College Dublin, the Centre de Recherches Sociologiques et Politiques, CNRS in Paris, and the Institute for Higher Studies in Vienna.
