She is the author of Les politiques d'immigration en Europe (l'Harmattan, 2000) and co-editor of Controlling a New Migration World (Routledge, 2001). Her current research analyzes the shifting of policy competence in the area of migration, asylum and anti-discrimination to the EU-level and the delegation of migration control to local, private and transnational actors. Her articles on these themes have appeared in a number of volumes and journals including the Journal of Common Market Studies, International Migration Review, the Journal of European Public Policy, West European Politics and Comparative Political Studies.
