Biography

Dan Fisher is a Geographer with an interest in borders, asylum law and refugee integration. He is currently working on a project titled "Scotland's 'New Scots' Strategy: Towards an international exemplar of best practice in refugee integration", which has been funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).

Prior to joining the University of Glasgow, Dan was employed at the James Hutton Institute, where he conducted research on the challenges of implementing sustainable (and socially inclusive) Green Infrastructure in the United Kingdom. He has also worked at the University of Exeter, where he researched asylum appeal proceedings in Europe as part of the ASYFAIR project (led by Professor Nick Gill).

Dan completed his PhD at the University of Edinburgh. His thesis critically engaged assemblage theory as a means of prising open the everyday workings (and failings) of border control. Ethnographic data from field sites in Spain, Morrocco and the UK were used to trace performances of border control and tactics of resistance.
