Migration is as much about the people who move as it is about the people who stay, and about the lived experiences of migrants, communities at origin and destination, and the transnational spaces in-between.

Anna Triandafyllidou

Areas of Expertise: 

migration governance; migrant integration; nationalism; cultural diversity; comparative approaches; qualitative methods

Research: 

Dr. Triandafyllidou is the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration. She is engaged into a variety of projects on migration management with a special focus on the role of migrant agency, the interaction between different drivers of migration and the global governance of migration and asylum (including an interest in irregular migration). With regard to migrant integration, she has a special interest in issues of identity, diversity, nationalism and multicultural citizenship approaches. She is also looking into the governance of cultural and religious diversity in different world regions (Europe, Asia, the MENA region). Last but not least she is considering migration and migrant integration in relation to the wider processes of socio-economic and geopolitical transformation that characterise the 21st century.
