dr Agnieszka Radziwinowiczówna

Agnieszka is a qualitative Sociologist with a specialisation in Social Anthropology. She researches involuntary migrations, specially deportations and bordering practices. She is the Principal Investigator in the UK2deport research project, where she studies the creation of UK’s deportation regime targeting EU citizens following the legal changes related to Brexit. Her previous research focussed on the experience of deportation of Mexican citizens removed from the United States of America under the Bush and Obama administrations. Her PhD dissertation “Living/Leaving the deportation regime: Power and Violence in deportation from the United States” (summa cum laude, University of Warsaw) was awarded the Prime Minister Award for the best PhD.

During her doctoral studies and following their completion, Agnieszka researched migration-driven social change at CMR, focussing on social remittances between Poland and UK, as well as elderly care in families of Polish migrants. Together with Anna Rosińska and Weronika Kloc-Nowak, she co-authored the concept of ethnomorality of care, which takes into account the normative, intentional and behavioural element of caregiving and care receiving as well as is informed by the intersectionality of the experience of care.
