Eva is Senior Lecturer (Professora Agregada) in the Department of Political Science and Public Law. She holds degrees in Anthropology and Political Science from Copenhagen University and a PhD in Politics from University of Oxford/ St. Antony’s College. Since 2010 she has coordinated the doctoral programme in Political Science and will coordinate the new larger programme on Politics, Policies and International Relations from 2014-2015.


Eva’s research interests include the politics of migration in both receiving and sending countries, migrant’s transnational networks, practices and forms of political participation. She is also interested in the wider conceptualization of transnational politics in the context of development and democratization. Eva is the author of numerous refereed journal articles, book chapters as well as a monograph and an edited volume (see CV). She is currently heading a project financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation titled Emigration, external citizenship and political parties in Spain, Italy and Romania, funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, 2010—1013.


Eva is keen to welcome new doctoral students within her research areas of interest (comparative politics, development and democratization, migration policies, and migrant political incorporation, transnational politics).
