Saracino, Daniele, Dr.

Before Daniele Saracino joined the Department of Government at the University of Essex as DAAD lecturer, he was a postdoctoral researcher and research associate at the Department for Political Science and Sociology at the University of Bonn (Germany). ln his dissertation, he developed a concept of solidarity and addressed the question of solidarity in the asylum system of the European Union, including a closer look on the so-called refugee crisis. After receiving his doctorate in 2019, he took a one-and-half-year sabbatical. He has led research projects on migration governance in Southern Africa as well as on the migratory movements from Africa to Europe during the Arab Spring. His research continues to focus on the questions of solidarity and the rule of Jaw in Europe’s asylum and border control policies.
