Fanny Tittel-Mosser holds a Master’s degree in Law and European studies as well as a Masters in international relations focused on development cooperation between the European Union and developing countries from the University of Strasbourg, France.
Working for a grassroots NGO in France on migration and development projects with Algeria, she developed her knowledge on migration and the role of Diasporas in the development of the country of origin. She mapped the network of Algerian migrants’ organizations in France and analyzed their impact in the former colony. Her experience with the International Organization for Migration liaison office to the United Nations in New York, gave her a broader perspective on migration policy, while also taking into account cross-cutting issues. Fanny has gained experience in the field of migration, intercultural dialog and youth through several projects with the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the Council of Europe. She speaks French, English, and Spanish and has an intermediary level of Portuguese, German and Greek.
She is currently a PhD researcher in Law and Political Science. Her research interests are postcolonial migration, migration law, EU legislation and migration policies with a strong focus on EU Mobility Partnerships, and migrant’s access to rights.
The aim of my research is to determine whether EU Mobility Partnerships can be relevant for the development of the legal frameworks and policies of third countries, namely Morocco and Cape Verde, and/or on the behavior of national authorities in relation to migrants’ access to rights and to understand what factors can fuel the creation of such effects.
This research will verify two hypotheses. The first hypothesis is that Mobility Partnerships while being soft law instruments, are not without legal and political relevance for the third country and that they may impact migrants’ access to rights. The second hypothesis is that external factors can condition the way Mobility Partnerships are relevant for the development of legal and policy frameworks in third countries. Pre-existing ties (such as postcolonial ties) and the geopolitical importance of a third country for the EU may constitute factors influencing the production of such legal/political developments.
