Nicola Piper is Professor of International Migration and Founding Director of the Sydney Asia Pacific Migration Centre at the University of Sydney. She is currently on secondment and British Academy Global Professor Fellow hosted by Queen Mary University of London’s School of Law (2019-2022). Nicola’s research interests revolve around the emerging global governance of labour migration and global advocacy politics. The project related to the British Academy fellowship interrogates the role of the International Labour Organisation and its tripartite constituents in advancing a rights-based approach to migration. This project is a sequence to her research on a rights-based and gender-sensitive approach to global and regional migration governance, with particular relevance to Asia and Africa.
