My Conceptual Research Mind

I am ​Full Professor ​at the Department of Political and Social Sciences, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona-Spain)​. And I am also the Director of GRITIM-UPF (Interdisciplinary Research Group on Immigration) and the Master Programme on Migration Studies. ​I am also member of the Board of Directors​ the European Network IMISCOE (International Migration and Social Cohesion in Europe​).

My main lines of research deal with contemporary issues of liberal democracy in contexts of diversity, especially the relationship between democracy, citizenship and immigration. In particular, within two main fields: Borders/Human Mobility Studies and Diversity/Citizenship studies. I promote interdisciplinary knowledge on immigration, combine theory and case studies, and follow contextual, conceptual and interpretive approaches. My findings always try to contribute to ​social and political changes, and to ​the European and Mediterranean approach in migration studies.
