Teia Rogers is a second year PhD student at the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS. The objective of her research project is to investigate the experiences of migrants and host communities against the backdrop of ever-increasing population movement and growing nationalist sentiment.
Teia holds an MA with distinction in Global Diplomacy from SOAS. Her research proposed the use of multi-track diplomacy in negotiations with armed non-state actors exploring Sri Lanka and Cyprus as case studies.
Teia has been a development professional working internationally for the last 10 years in the fields of governance, gender, peace building and child rights.
Teia's PhD research employs Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) in a cross-sectional investigation of strain within migrant and host communities in Lebanon and Germany. The objective of this research is to interrogate the points at which social strain, experienced as a result of extraordinary human movement, intersects with increased hostility toward migrants and the impact of this collision on the vulnerability of these communities to ideological influence.
