Dr Marcia Vera Espinoza

Thanks for visiting my website! I am a Lecturer in Human Geography at Queen Mary University of London. I joined the School of Geography in September 2018. My research interests are in refugee and migrant inclusion, forced migration and immigration policies in Latin America and international and regional migration governance.

Previously, I was an associate researcher in the ERC funded project ´Prospects for International Migration Governance´ (MIGPROSP), and I taught in the Politics Department at the University of Sheffield.

My PhD research, awarded in 2016 at the University of Sheffield, explored the experiences of resettlement and integration of Palestinian and Colombian refugees in Chile and Brazil, and analysed the extent and ways in which the resettlement programme is implemented in South America.

I have been writing and researching about migrants and refugees in Latin America since 2004, first as a journalist and then as part of my academic career. At the same time, my life has been shaped by my own experiences of migration and translocal belongings.  

Since 2010 I have been presenting my research at a number of national and international conferences, mainly in Europe and Latin America. In this website you can find information about my research, publications and upcoming talks.
