Rights Lab Research Fellow and Lead in Migration and Displacement
Dr. Audrey Lumley-Sapanski (School of Law) works as part of the Rights Lab's Law and Policy Programme, exploring the intersections between antislavery governance, migration, and integration. This work includes investigating the intersections between immigration policy and antislavery, and identifying the impacts of COVID-19 on particularly vulnerable communities, modern slavery risks, and trafficking and migration routes. Building on a background in the non-profit sector, her research interests concern the mechanisms through which new populations are incorporated into receiving societies. This is reflected in both her previous work evaluating the resettlement of refugees within the United States and her work in Italy which explored the impact of technologies of migration governance.
