Nina Sahraoui

Coordinator of The (un)deserving migrant? Interrogating non-conventional bordering practices in the European space project

Biography

Dr Nina Sahraoui is currently affiliated to the GTM-CRESPPA, CNRS and the Collèges d’études mondiales, Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme in Paris, where she co-coordinates the research project ‘The (Un)deserving migrant?’.

As a Research Associate at the European University Institute within the project EU Border Care, Nina conducted fieldwork in Melilla (Spain) and Mayotte (France) on the politics of maternity care among undocumented migrants on the peripheries of the European Union.

Nina completed her doctoral research at London Metropolitan University, supported by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship. Her doctoral research focused on racialised workers’ experiences in older-age care in London, Paris and Madrid, leading to a gendered political-economy analysis of the articulation of employment, care and migration regimes.
