The MIRNet team welcomes Victoria as a Dora Plus recipient, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Estonia. Her research focuses on migrant voting, political resocialization, (non)citizenship, and migration governance, particularly in South America. Victoria is a dual-PhD Candidate in Humanities at Leiden University, Institute for History, and in Political Science at Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile. She also holds an MA in International Affairs from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University.
The MIRNet project supports early career researchers and Victoria is helping us to expand our international breadth and is contributing to our research output on migration and integration—such as through her December 2020 publication on multiterritorial migrant voting. Together with Mari-Liis Jakobson, Associate Professor of Political Sociology in the School of Governance, Law and Society and part of the MIRNet consortium, they are authoring the research paper, ‘Mobility During Pandemics: Moving Borders and Citizenship into Uncharted Territories’. Victoria will present this during MIRNet’s first conference, ‘The Anxieties of Migration and Integration in Turbulent Times’ (programme here) on 14 and 15 of January 2021.
Victoria’s academic publications can be found in Citizenship Studies, International Political Science Review, Latin American Policy, among others; for Spanish readers, further work can be found in Revista Interdisciplinar da Mobilidade Humana, Revista Andina de Estudios Políticos, and forthcoming in Colombia Internacional.
