Title: Varieties of Exclusion: Explaining the differing legal trajectories of immigrant groups

PhD Supervisor: David Sylvan




Julia is a doctoral student in the International Relations/Political Science department. Her research interests include comparative migration studies, a path inspired by coursework during her master at the Institute. Julia's dissertation seeks to explain the drivers of states' immigration policies and differences in legal treatment between immigrant groups by focusing on the perceptions of immigration in legislative debates. Prior to arriving at the Institute in 2018, she spent 4.5 years working in government affairs with an international organization based in Bonn, Germany. She holds a BA in International Studies from Rhodes College.
