Cécilia Philippe, MA program (Études Internationales)

IMy research focuses on the influence of migration dynamics in certain regions of Africa, in relation to human rights. More specifically, I adopt a feminist approach to focus on the impact of these movements on migrant girls.


Jessie Bigras-Lauzon, MA program

In my research, I analyze the arrival of unaccompanied migrants minors to the Canadian border. I am interested in the tension between Canada's moral and legal obligation to protect these migrants and Canadian border governance imperatives.


Lyna Ismahane Mansouri, honours progam (2021-2022)

I’m interested in the evolution of migration policies between formerly colonized countries and former colonial powers, and in the decolonization of migration governance through the implementation of an open border approach. My present research focuses on how governments respond to climate induced migration within Africa.  


Guillermo Candiz, postdoctoral studies (2019-2022)

My work focuses on migration in America and North Africa, and particularly on the migration paths of Central Americans to Mexico and sub-Saharan people to Morocco. 


Marie-Pierre Tremblay, MA program

My research focuses on border spaces. I adopt a feminist geopolitical approach to study border imperialism and its impact on Indigenous communities, more specifically those fragmented by the international borders.


Elizabeth Hessek, PhD program

My research interests lie at the intersection of migration studies and queer geography. I am particularly interested in applying participatory and reparative frameworks to understand queer refugees’ experiences after resettlement.


Jeanne Beauchemin, MA program (2019-2022)

My research highlighted how violence has become intrinsically linked to contemporary borders and how the principle of the best interests of the child is hampered by policies involving the restriction of mobility.​


Marianne Turcotte-Plamondon (2018-2020)

I finished my master's program in the Department of Geography at the University of Montréal in 2020. In my master's project, I studied how migrants newly arrived to Montreal experienced the early stages of their integration process. My research concentrated on neighbourhood and municipal scales.
