Stephanie Condon

Stephanie Condon is a full-time researcher at the Institut National d'Etudes Démographiques (INED) in Paris and head of the International Migration and Minorities unit since 2010.

After a BA Hons in Modern Languages and Geography, she received a DEA in History and Civilizations at the University of Lyon II and then a PhD in Geography at Queen Mary College, London. Her doctorate investigated Italian migration to the city of Lyon (France) between 1890 and 1960. Since then, her work has focused on migration and gender, with a particular interest in Caribbean migration to Europe. She is currently working on two projects: a European project on migrant domestic workers (ILO/FIERI/Ortega y Gasset/INED/CeMIS); and on the social and geographical mobility of young 'French Caribbeans' (born in the Caribbean or mainland-France-born descendants of migrants) and issues of gender, culture, language and identity.

Recent books publications:
Migration in Comparative Perspective: Caribbean communities in Britain and France (with Margaret Byron, Routledge, 2008).
Violence against women and ethnicity: Commonalities and differences across Europe (co-edited with Ravi Thiara and Monika Schröttle, Barbara Budrich, 2011).
