Department:

Sarah Scuzzarello is a Research Fellow in Cross-national Comparative Politics at the Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR). Her research focuses mainly on comparative politics with a focus on the politics of citizenship, migration and integration. Sarah’s work is interdisciplinary, drawing from politics and political psychology.
Her most recent research project (“How migrants identify with their societies of settlement: a comparison of migrant communities in Malmö and Ealing (London)” ref. nr. VR2011-1166) addresses questions of collective identity formation among migrants relative to their social integration trajectories, and how these are shaped by the institutional and discursive contexts of the cities where they reside. This project develops and moves beyond her earlier doctoral research, titled Caring Multiculturalism. Local Immigrant Policies and Narratives of Integration in Malmö, Birmingham, and Bologna.
Sarah has published original empirically-based research in leading academic journals (e.g. Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies; Political Psychology; Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology), and contributed to volumes published by leading academic presses, including On behalf of Others. The morality of care in a global world, published by Oxford University Press, for which she is the first named editor.
Prior to joining the SCMR, Sarah was Associate Lecturer at the University of Surrey (2014); a Swedish Research Council Post-doctoral Fellow at City university London (2011-2013), a Lecturer in International Relations at Lund University (2010-2011) where she also obtained her PhD in Politics (2010, with distinctions).
