About the speaker

Diletta Lauro completed her PhD on the UK politics of deportation at the Oxford Department of International Development in 2021. She joined RAMP (Refugee, Asylum and Migration Policy project) in September 2021.

Diletta's doctoral research explored the ethical and political controversies raised by the state practice of deportation by looking at civil society contestations of deportation. Focusing on the United Kingdom, this research traced the historical evolution of anti-deportation activism from the late 1970s until 2016. Diletta holds an undergraduate degree in International Relations with a specialization in Political Philosophy from the University of St Andrews, and an MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies from the University of Oxford.
