Emilien Fargues specializes in the field of citizenship and migration, working on exclusions from citizenship (refusals of naturalisation and revocation of citizenship). He is interested in what exclusions reveal about the political, moral, economic, or ethno-cultural dimensions of national membership, in a variety of domestic settings. Emilien defended his comparative Ph.D. dissertation at Sciences Po Paris in 2019 on the justifications for the granting and stripping of nationality in the United Kingdom and France.

His postdoctoral project for the Fellowship extends the questions he has been exploring to a larger number of countries, going beyond Europe. It includes the construction of a global database on exclusions from naturalisation and a more in-depth investigation of specific cases. To conduct this project, he is working together with Liav Orgad and his Global Citizenship Governance project and with the GLOBALCIT network at the RSCAS. 

Expertise for Teaching and Mentoring of Ph.D. Researchers

Teaching is an important component of Emilien’s academic profile. His teaching interests range widely, from introductory courses in political science/political sociology at an undergraduate level, to undergraduate and postgraduate courses on methods and research design in political science. He has taught his own course on citizenship and migration at Sciences Po Paris to undergraduate students. In addition, he has taught and supervised in both English and French in multiple academic settings, with students from diverse backgrounds.
