About me

Katerina Glyniadaki is a Teaching Fellow on the European Institute's MSc International Migration and Public Policy programme. During the 2019-2020 academic year, she is leading seminars for two courses: International Migration and Immigration Management (GV4A5) and International Migration: EU Policies and Politics (EU464).

Katerina was a PhD Candidate at the European Institute, LSE, between 2015 and 2019. Her PhD thesis examined how those at the front lines of migration management in Athens, Greece, and Berlin, Germany, make decisions under conditions of high uncertainty. Her research uses a qualitative methodological approach and combines theoretical perspectives from public administration and social psychology. More generally, Katerina is interested in how migration policies related to asylum determination and migrant integration are carried out in practice and what the role of human discretion during this process is. Her work contributes to the fields of street-level bureaucracy and representative bureaucracy.

Katerina expects to receive her PhD in the summer of 2020. She also holds an MPhil in Social Psychology from the University of Cambridge, an MA in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside, and a BA in Communication Studies from the University of California, Riverside.
