- European welfare systems in times of mobility Research Project
Marie holds an MSc in Forced Migration from the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford, and has a PhD in Social Sciences from the University of East London. Her doctoral thesis addressed the nature of political activism carried out by Congolese women from the diaspora in Belgium and the UK and aims to improve understanding of the still under-researched area of gender, diaspora and the peace-building/development nexus.
Prior to joining IMI, Marie worked as a researcher at the Group for Research on Ethnic Relations, Migration and Equality (GERME) at the Free University of Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles). Marie recently took part as an editor in a project called Voices from the “Jungle”, Stories from the Calais Refugee Camp (Pluto Press, 2017). The book is a collection of individual testimonies (through poetry, prose poems, diary entries, photography, drawings and other media) of Calais refugees who narrate their life stories in a search for a wider audience.
