Name: Tina Magazzini
Host institution: Human Rights Institute, University of Deusto
Profile: Tina Magazzini is currently based at UNESCO’s Regional Office for Southern Africa (Social and Human Science unit) in Harare, Zimbabwe, where she focuses on knowledge-production on migration and inclusion in the Southern African region. Born to an American mother and Italian father, living in different countries within and outside Europe, much of Tina’s personal interests, academic passion and intellectual curiosity have revolved around international studies, minority rights, foreign languages and cultures. She holds a BA in Political Science and International Studies from the University of Florence, Italy, and a MA in International Relations from the City College of New York. She carried out her PhD as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at the University of Deusto, with a secondment at the University of Sussex, in the framework of the INTEGRIM programme. Within the Working Package on “Identity and cultural integration” she conducted a comparative analysis of Italy and Spain’s Roma integration strategies as a way to better understand the political dynamics which drive the framing of certain minorities as ‘in need to integrate’, questioning what they are asked to integrate into. Tina defended her PhD (international mention and cum laude) on March 8, 2018.
Previously to joining the INTEGRIM programme, she worked with a number of NGOs, non-profits and the European Commission in the areas of social inclusion, policy analysis, indigenous and minority rights in Portugal, Italy, the US, Guatemala, Belgium and Hungary.
