The Cambridge Migration Society is excited to welcome CNRS Research Fellow Dr Chowra Makaremi. Dr Makaremi will join us to speak about border detention and asylum in France. This event will be moderated by Fabrice Langrognet (PhD candidate, Cambridge), who has experience as a judge specialized in immigration and asylum matters since 2010.

This event will take place in Alison Richard Building Room 119.

About Dr Makaremi:
Chowra Makaremi is a tenured researcher, National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Social Issues, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. Her research focuses on issues of security, migration control, the anthropology of law and the state, and processes of subjectivation at the margins. She completed a PhD in anthropology at the Université de Montréal in 2010 based on an ethnography of border confinement for undocumented migrants in France. Her current research on delinquency courts in France reflects on the everyday experience of justice, policies of delinquency repression, punishment and the moral economy of adjudication. She teaches at the University Paris Est-Créteil.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan
