Tonika Stephenson: Migration Co-operation between Africa and Europe

This internship opportunity was brought to my attention through an email from the Law department administration personnel. I read and researched what it involved and was immediately drawn to it because it addresses issues that are fundamental in and to our society today. I am a 3rd year law student who assist victims of the Windrush Scandal and look at the effects of the hostile environment and legislation that the British Government applies to certain sectors.

The migration co-operation project internship with the Social Sciences Department provides the ideal opportunity for me to grown and develop my understanding how the Human Rights Convention and other aspects of EU Regulation may positively influence co-operation between nations and migrants.
