I am starting a PhD project in geography, analyzing the convergence and divergence of citizen networks and city networks in the field of welcoming and hospitality policies for vulnerable migrants. It is based on a comparison between 3 cities, in 3 different countries in Europe: Marseille, Bristol and Athens. These dynamics interplay with national, regional and European contexts and find some extensions at regional and global levels.
Could you please tell us a bit more about your scholarship/exchange programme?
I am beneficiating from a partnership between Aix-Marseille University and la Maison Française d’Oxford for a 3-year doctoral contract. During this time, I will spend one semester per year at la Maison Française d’Oxford.
First impressions of Oxford/the University?
Oxford is a quiet and beautiful city with a variety of green spaces. It’s a very pleasant place to carry out research work and to exchange with other students and academics in a variety of disciplines.
