Speaker: Dr Agnieszka Kubal - Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford.
Series: Centre for Crime and Justice Research Seminars
Agnieszka is a British Academy Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies. Her research interests lie broadly at the intersection of legal and migration studies. She joined the Centre from the International Migration Institute where she was working on migrants' (third country nationals) legal incorporation and rights-citizenship nexus within the legal framework of the European Union. She received her DPhil from the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies for a thesis entitled: 'Socio-Legal Integration of Polish post-2004 EU Enlargement Migrants in the United Kingdom' (2010). Her doctorate explored the socio-legal aspects of Polish migrants' relationship with the British legal system during the transition period upon the 2004 Enlargement of EU, and has been published as a monograph with Ashgate (2012).
Agnieszka currently pursues a research which advances new theoretical perspectives on the interplay between migration governance and migrants as agents responding to the new socio-legal environment. It uses the case of Russia to offer new approaches to studying socio-legal dimensions of labour migrations globally, beyond the European/ American experiences, drawing upon ideas from law and society and migration studies.
