We are inviting applications for 2 PhD Positions within the framework of the European Research Council project “Reintegrate: Reintegration Governance ”. The Reintegrate project is funded for five years (2021-2026) through a 1.5 million euro ‘Starting Grant’ from the European Research Council. Funding from the European Research Council means that applicants of all nationalities are eligible for this project. We are looking for enthusiastic applicants willing to contribute to a dynamic research environment focused on academic, policy and societal impact.
The PhD positions will be part of a research team led by Dr Katie Kuschminder. Under the supervision of Dr Katie Kuschminder, the PhD researchers will be responsible for developing and carrying out their own original project in one of the following countries: Ethiopia, Morocco, Nepal, or Serbia, within the overarching analytical and methodological frame of the project. The PhD researchers will also undertake collaborative work with other team members.
The Reintegrate project will study the governance of how return migrants are reintegrated into societies upon their return. The project will develop a conceptual understanding of what is reintegration governance, its implementation, and effectiveness and a new theoretical model of how different forms of reintegration governance shape returnee’s reintegration experiences and outcomes. Four types of reintegration governance are considered: 1) national reintegration governance (a nation states own legislation regarding reintegration); 2) supranational reintegration governance (includes assisted voluntary return programmes and readmission agreements); 3) high reintegration governance (including both the national and supranational); and 4) low reintegration governance (excluding both the national and supranational). The four country case studies to assess the different forms of reintegration governance are Ethiopia, Morocco, Nepal and Serbia.
The Reintegrate project uses a mixed methodology and interdisciplinary approach drawing from anthropology, geography, legal analysis, political science and international relations, and migration and development studies. The project will commence with a systematic mapping of global reintegration governance across countries. The second stage will be to conduct key stakeholder interviews to understand the policy and praxis of reintegration governance including how policies are developed and implemented and the gaps within this process. The third stage will be to conduct original field work (planned at six months) in each case study country with key stakeholder interviews and narrative interviews with return migrants. Each selected PhD researcher will be responsible for field work in one case study country. The final phase of the project will be a comparative assessment and synthesis of the findings that will provide systematic evidence of reintegration governance and its effectiveness.
