Dr. Katerina Glyniadaki is a Fellow in International Migration at the European Institute. Her research focuses on the implementation of migration policies across different European countries and combines perspectives from public administration, sociology and psychology.
Katerina’s PhD thesis examined the so-called European migration crisis of 2015-2017, focusing on capital cities of Athens and Berlin. It looked at how those at the front lines of migration management make decisions under conditions of high uncertainty. Her work contributes, primarily, to the fields of migration policy and street-level bureaucracy.
Following the completion of her PhD, Katerina has worked as a Teaching Fellow for LSE’s MSc International Migration and Public Policy programme (European Institute), the Executive Master of Public Policy and the Executive Master of Public Administration (School of Public Policy). She has also been an employee at the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as a Research Director at the 89 Initiative and the Migration Research Programme.
Katerina is a holder of a PhD in European Studies (LSE), an MA in Sociology (University of California, Riverside), an MPhil in Psychology (University of Cambridge) and a BA in Communications (University of California, Riverside).
