Emma Empociello

Emma Empociello is a PhD candidate in political science at Sciences Po Bordeaux. Her PhD research focuses on changes in public policies towards Syrian asylum seekers in borderlands. Her different case studies at the Serbo-Hungarian, Greek-Turkish and Syrian-Jordanian borders shed light on a common refoulement process with different practices of containment towards asylum seekers.

She is an associate researcher at the French Institute for the Near East and at the French Collaborative Institute on Migration. She has been a teaching assistant at Sciences Po Paris for 3 years on lectures on migration governance, displacement and contentious politics in the Middle East.

She is also a member of several international projects, Horizon 2020 MAGYC project (Migration Governance and asYlum Crises), co-facilitator of the “Sociologies of the International” axis of the Émile Durkheim’s lab, and co-founder of the program on the EU’s action in Jordan with Noria Research, Ifpo and SineQuaNon. Within these programs, she has also researched migration policies and their historicity within these different fieldworks, from camp policies to economic agreements.
