Name: Reinhard Schweitzer

Host Institution: Sussex Centre for Migration Research, University of Sussex

Profile: Reinhard Schweitzer studied Political Science and Sociology at the University of Innsbruck, spending extensive study and research periods in Santiago de Chile and San José, Costa Rica. After a one-year traineeship at the Austrian Foreign Ministry and collaborations in a number of NGOs, he recently completed an MA in Migration Studies at the University of Sussex, where he is now pursuing his PhD as a Marie Curie Research Fellow.His research interest centres on the interplay between migration policies and policy-making on the one hand, and international migrants’ own perceptions, strategies and behaviours on the other, as well as the structural inequalities underlying both. For his PhD he will analyse every-day processes of socio-economic integration among irregular migrants in Spain and the UK, in order to better understand and compare the specific opportunities and constraints faced by different groups in different local settings.
