Nando Sigona is a sociologist with over ten years research and teaching experience in migration, refugee and ethnic studies. He joined the School of Social Policy in February 2013 as a Birmingham Fellow. Dr Sigona’s work investigates the interplay between forms and modes of contemporary membership, migration governance (both immigration and emigration), and the politics of belonging. This will be achieved through in-depth examinations of a range of experiences of membership including, but not limited to, those of: ethnic minorities; citizen children of undocumented migrant parents; former unaccompanied asylum seeking children; people with dual citizenship; ‘failed’ asylum seekers; and stateless people.
Dr Sigona is one of the founding editors of Migration Studies, a new refereed journal by Oxford University Press due to start publication in Spring 2013. He maintains a personal blog - Postcards from..., contributes for magazines, newspapers and blogs, and is active on social media.
