Refugee Diplomacy as a Polycentric 'Battlefield': Cooperation and Conflict over Displacement in the Shadow of Syria's War

hosted by Professor Raffaella A. Del Sarto

Tamirace Fakhoury
Aalborg University, Denmark

This research seminar looks at the EU's refugee diplomacy in the Mediterranean as a polycentric ‘battlefield'. Drawing on the case of Syrian displacement since 2011, I explore how the European Union (the EU) and key regional refugee hosting countries in the Eastern Mediterranean have collaborated and clashed on refugee diplomacy, and what this has meant for the EU's conflict resolution strategy in the shadow of Syria's armed conflict.

Tamirace Fakhoury is Associate Professor of Political Science at Aalborg University's Copenhagen Campus in Denmark. She is also a visiting professor at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences Po in Paris where she was the Scientific advisor to the Kuwait Chair.

Previously, Fakhoury was an associate professor at the Lebanese American University and the director of the Institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution (ISJCR) where she led the project "Resilience and Inclusive Governance in the post-2011 Middle East", funded by the Carnegie Foundation of New York. From 2012 until 2016, she was a visiting assistant professor in the summer sessions at the University of California, Berkeley. Her core research and publication areas are: power-sharing and ethno-sectarian conflicts, migration and refugee governance in conflict areas, norm contestation in the global refugee regime, and the European Union's conflict resolution and migration policy in the Mediterranean.
