William Allen

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow  




Affiliation: Department of Politics and International Relations
Expert in: Forced migration, Migration governance and policy, Migration narratives, representations, and public opinion
Geographic focus: Europe, Latin America




Will's work uses migration as a lens onto the causes and consequences of engaging with information about political and economic information--particularly through visual, social, and digital media. He focuses on immigration public opinion, migration policymaking, and the roles of journalists and civil society organisations in both of these domains. This shapes his commitment to publicly engaged research: he is keen to develop more effective ways of exchanging knowledge among users and researchers, which can feed into better research practice.
