Research interests

Bialasiewicz's work focuses on the political geographies of European integration and on European borders, with a particular focus on the 'geographical imaginations' of European belonging, within and beyond the territorial confines of Europe, and the role of Europe in the wider world. Her most recent research has examined EU border management and EU geopolitics, looking specifically at the role of third states in the 'out-sourcing' of EU border controls in the Mediterranean. Her work also engages with the historical geographies of Mediterranean cities, Trieste, Tangiers and Alexandria in particular.
