Judith Kopp studied Cultural Sciences and Sociology in Lucerne, Geneva and Frankfurt (Main). From 2011 until 2018 she worked with the human rights organization PRO ASYL at the European department. Her work focused on the situation at the external borders of the EU and the cooperation with countries of transit and origin.
As an associated member of the research project, she analyses the reorganisation of the European border regime along its external dimension. The primary focus of her project lies on the discourse and policies of „fighting root causes of migration and forced displacement” in the context of the “summer of migration” 2015.
