Personal profile


Anna is a political scientist, with a particular interest in immigration policy making and conservative parties. She received her PhD in Political Science from Ulster University in 2018. Anna’s research interests include conservative and radical right parties, immigration, integration and British and French immigration politics. Her current research examines why how institutional context shapes immigration policy and what explains the increasing reframing of immigration through welafre lens. Her first book Immigration Policy and Right-Wing Populism in Western Europe was published with Palgrave Macmillan in 2020. It examined immigration policy logic of the conservative parties in the UK, Swizterland and France, mapping the factors that led to the introduction of more restrictive immigration policies and the mechanisms that accounted for it. Her research aso appeared in the journal of French Politics. Before joining UWS Anna worked as a lecturer and as a research associate at Ulster University. She holds two research focused masters, one from Central European University and one from the University of Lausanne.
