dr Karolina Łukasiewicz

I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the Centre of Migration Research. My research is focused on immigrant integration and poverty policies in urban contexts. I studied various aspects of these policies for over 15 years in European and American cities using qualitative and quantitative research methods. My research was funded by the European Commission, European Social Fund, the National Science Centre in Poland, and national and local administrations (e.g., the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior), the American Association of University Women, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Institute of Human Development and Social Change at New York University. My articles were published in journals such as the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, International Migration, City and Community, Polish American Studies, and Journal of Family Issues. Additionally to her academic engagement, I have served as an evaluation consultant for NGOs and centres supporting immigrant communities, including the NYU Collaborative for New Immigrant Education. Before joining CMR, I was a researcher at the McSilver Institute of Poverty Policy and Research at New York University and at the Centre for Evaluation and Analysis of Public Policies at Jagiellonian University. I received my postdoctoral training at the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research, PhD in Sociology at the Jagiellonian University, and M.A.in European Political Sociology at Dalarna University and at the Jagiellonian University.
