Katharina researches migration politics from a comparative perspective, with a particular focus on the role of political regimes in immigration policymaking.

Katharina has published, inter alia, in International Migration Review, Population and Development Review, Mediterranean Politics, Third World Quarterly and the Journal of North African Studies.
