    Research Interests

    Tamlyn Monson's research focuses on inequalities of mobility, space and power, how they are reproduced, and what they produce. Her work embraces a range of themes including established-newcomer relations; informal institutions and everyday practices; place-based solidarities, political subjectivities, moral economies and repertoires of collective actioncompeting notions of social justice and logics of inclusion and exclusion; conflict, displacement and insecurity; and policy responses to conflict, cohesion and integration.


    Tamlyn Monson is a research fellow on two cross-European research projects which investigate migrant arrival and integration processes. She has a multidisciplinary academic background, with a PhD in Sociology (LSE), and Masters degrees in Forced Migration Studies (U. Witwatersrand) and Applied Linguistics (Birkbeck). Much of her professional life has been dedicated to research, policy and knowledge mobilisation around issues of community relations, migration and integration. She has worked across the government, NGO and academic spheres both in the UK and South Africa. From 2007-2011, she worked as a researcher at the African Centre for Migration and Society, and during this period led a South African Human Rights Commission enquiry into issues of rule of law, justice and impunity arising from collective violence against non-nationals in that country. Tamlyn has since worked for UCL’s Development Planning Unit, the UK Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
