Leonie Ansems de Vries

Leonie Ansems de Vries is a Reader in International Politics, Director of the King’s Sanctuary Programme and chair of the Migration Research Group at King’s College London. Her work combines research on migration, borders and the politics of violence with practical action and policy development on safe and legal pathways.
