Samuel David Schmid is a PhD researcher at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. Supervised by Rainer Bauböck and Maarten Vink, he comparatively investigates the relationship between the openness of borders and the inclusiveness of citizenship.
Sam will present his paper entitled ‘Open borders versus inclusive citizenship? The dynamic and context-dependent politics of linking immigration and citizenship policies’ in the MACIMIDE/MiLifeStatus seminar on February 28. As Sam’s other research interests also cover immigrant integration outcomes and democratic inclusion, engaging with MiLifeStatus and MACIMIDE will help Sam learn more about the micro-level perspective in migration and citizenship studies.
