Emilien Fargues, Ph.D.
Émilien Fargues is a Max Weber Fellow at the EUI, working in the field of citizenship and migration studies. He is particularly interested in what exclusions from citizenship reveal about the political, moral, economic, and ethno-cultural dimensions of national membership, in a variety of domestic settings. Émilien defended his comparative PhD dissertation at Sciences Po Paris in 2019 on the justifications for the granting and stripping of nationality in the United Kingdom and France. Émilien’s postdoctoral project currently extends the questions he has been exploring to a larger number of countries, beyond Europe. It includes the construction of a global database on exclusions from naturalisation and a more in-depth investigation of specific cases.
