Dr. Mireille Hebing studied at London South Bank University before completing her PhD at City University in 2009. She is an experienced lecturer with considerable knowledge and experience of designing, planning, and delivering high quality teaching on a range of both postgraduate and undergraduate courses, including modules in Sociology, International Relations, Social and Political Theory, Migration and Refugee Studies, Human Trafficking, Philosophy of Social Science and Research Methods, Gender, and Race and Racism. She is a member of the ‘Networks of Power' research centre.
Mireille's research has mainly focused on refugee and migrant integration, and in particular explores the construction of personal refugee narratives in a variety of political, policy and social contexts, thereby examining the extent to which refugees have the freedom to share the stories of their personal experiences.
Recently, Mireille has been involved in the development of International Relations and Political Science majors with the Liberal Studies Programme at Regent’s. In addition, over the past seven years, she has developed and taught a graduate module on Research Methods and Perspectives in International Relations, and designed a range of undergraduate modules on Sociology, Globalisation and Individualisation, Human Trafficking, Methods of Political Inquiry, Human Rights, Migration and Refugees, and Cities and Communities.
Mireille has supervised Master's dissertations on a variety of topics at Regent's University London. She is particularly interested to supervise theses on migration, refugees, globalisation, gender, and topics from a post-structural or postcolonial perspective.
Mireille's broad research interest is in the field of migration and refugee studies, and includes topics such as the politics of asylum, asylum and immigration policy, theories of migration and forced migration, researching refugees, especially participatory methodologies. Recent research interest involves discourses surrounding the integration and settlement of new migrants in Britain and the EU.
