Dr Cetta Mainwaring

  • Leverhulme Early Career Fellow (Central & East European Studies)

Research interests

I joined the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow in March 2016 as a Leverhulme Research Fellow. Prior to coming to Glasgow, I was an Assistant Professor in Sociology and Legal Studies at the University of Waterloo, Canada, and a research fellow at the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at the University of California, San Diego. I hold a DPhil in International Relations from the University of Oxford (2012), and an MA in Sociology from City University, London (2006).

My research interests lie at the intersection of migration, borders and state controls. My doctoral thesis analysed how EU member states have sought to control irregular immigration at the EU’s external border in the Mediterranean, using Cyprus and Malta as case studies. In this research, I investigated the relationship between these migration ‘gatekeepers’ on the edge of Europe and the European Union, as well as migrant and refugee experiences on the islands. Subsequently, I co-led a collaborative cross-regional project, ‘Clandestine Migration Journeys’ (with Noelle Brigden, Marquette), which links migration policies with the everyday experiences of migrants travelling without authorization. It analyses how migrants overcome restrictive policies in order to enter countries, despite the barriers they face along the route.

As a Leverhulme Fellow, I am working on a project exploring the externalisation of borders and bordering practices by looking at the way in which the UK uses visa practices to control migration.

My work has been published in International Political Sociology, Migration Studies, Geopolitics, Population, Space and Place, and elsewhere. My first book, At Europe's Edge: Migration and Crisis in the Mediterranean, will be published by Oxford University Press in summer 2019.
