Biography

Martha graduated from the University of Glasgow with First Class Honours and a Distinction for her M.A. in Modern Languages. She then stayed there to pursue an M.Sc. in Equality and Human Rights for which she wrote a dissertation on the framing of the “Calais Crisis” in the Scottish Press. She is particularly interested in issues surrounding forced migration, refugee integration and identity-building. While her research interests are not particularly centred on a specific geographic area, she has mostly studied migration in the UK (and Scotland more precisely), France and Italy with a particular emphasis on their borders. She is currently an advocacy officer and project assistant at the International Network of Human Rights, a Geneva-based NGO with UN Special Consultative status which acts as an intermediary between the various United Nations’ bodies and Latin American Human Rights defenders and NGOs.
