IMISCOE Web Directory - Francesco Pasetti
Research fellow at CIDOB in the area of migration and adjunct professor at Pompeu Fabra University. My interest in “migration matters” dates back to my experience at the ASK Research Center (Bocconi University) where I developed a two-year project on diasporic media. Turned my attention to the world of politics, I delved into the study of immigrant integration and its politics at GRITIM-UPF, firstly as master student and then as PhD candidate. In my doctoral thesis I addressed the issue of integration policies in Europe through a mixed-method investigation, paying special attention to the political imaginaries that lie beyond citizenship regimes in Italy and Spain. My expertise on integration policies grows in parallel as research collaborator for the Migration Policy Center (European University Institute) between 2013 and 2015. My research interests and my areas of expertise include immigration and integration policies in comparative perspective, the political ideas and discourses related to immigration and its governance, as well as the media representation of the immigration phenomenon.
