Specific Research Title, Area and Promotor(s)

Research Tile: Civic Integration Policy in Europe between Politics and Law -Diversity within Convergence-

Description of research work

One of my biggest research interests is to disclose the impact of European Union on the policies of Member States and mechanisms of interaction between them. For this objective, I would like to focus on the emerging trend of “civic integration policy” across Member States. This policy connects immigrant integration policy and immigration policy by setting conditions for admission, and some argue that states use the policy to restrict migration. Many previous studies argue that Member states instrumentarized the European Union to diffuse the policy in Europe. I would like to unpack the complex process of interactions between the EU and member states, and bring some refinement in Europeanization theory as well.
