Cities and Refugees: To a comparative analysis of the migratory “crisis” as a political opportunity for European metropolises. The cases of Paris and Barcelona.

Brief description:

My thesis project aims to analyze the emergence of a new form of local public action in two European cities which challenge the management of the "refugees crisis" by the European Union and the various member states. The interest lies in seeing how these cities, by taking up this public problem, try to assert themselves as a political actor on national and international stages, in particular by seeking to define a new common strategy for a concerted migration management by networking.
