  • I was Principal Investigator of the project “Contested Global Governance, Transformed Global Governors? International Organisations and “Weak” States” (GLOBALCONTEST) funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR) at the University of Paris 13 (Paris, France).

Article
Full-text available
Numerous international organizations (IOs) play a key role in generating and sustaining migration governance across the world in the absence of a global migration regime. However, global governance scholarship lacks grounded understanding of their role, which is often rejected or simply left unnoticed. In rare cases when IOs do get academic attenti...
Article
Full-text available
The absence of a solid international migration regime and related competition between international organisations (IOs) in the field of global migration governance bring challenges to their authority and legitimacy to the fore. This paper sets to explore how the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has reacted to such challenges. For this...
Article

Article

Building on previous work on the securitisation of HIV/AIDS, studies of framings, and the Copenhagen and Paris schools of security studies, this essay explores how policy framings of HIV/AIDS have shifted from the late Soviet period through to present-day Tajikistan. Pointing to both continuity and change, it shows how, under the influence of inter...
Article
Full-text available
Tajikistan is one of the main migrant origin countries in the post-Soviet world, with about one million labour migrants living and working in Russia. It is also one of the world’s most remittance-dependent economies. By exploring how and why the Tajik government has engaged with labour migrants since 1991, this article analyses the development of e...
Chapter

We briefly describe the development and uniqueness of the Eurasian migration system, analyse the place of Russia in this system and its role in shaping key trends of migration governance in the post-Soviet (Eurasian) spa...
Article

Article

Research on European Union (EU)–Russia cooperation in migration issues often neglects important actors involved in these seemingly bilateral arrangements.

Article
Full-text available
Works that address European Union (EU)-Russia cooperation within the overarching project of the common space of freedom, security and justice (FSJ) often look at this ‘space’ as if it were regarded by both parties as a naturally coherent field, where cooperation had to be developed evenly in all of the sub-fields. Consequently, this misperception o...
