Diddordebau ymchwil

Catrin is an expert in language policy and politics, immigration, multiculturalism and sub-state governance. Her work has examined the approaches of sub-state governments to immigration and linguistic diversity and has adopted a comparative approach to analyse language and immigration policies in Catalonia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Wales. She is currently involved in a Horizon2020 funded-project, IMAJIINE, and is looking specifically at the role Corsican nationalist parties play in achieving political, economic and social justice.

A key priority for Catrin is engaging with research and policy partners beyond her immediate academic network. This has already led to collaboration with non-academic communities both to ensure that her research has societal impact and more generally in order to bridge the gap between policy and academic communities. This has involved preparing evidence-based policy briefing papers for governmental and non-governmental actors in the UK including the Welsh Government, Home Office, Department for Communities and Local Government and Department for International Development. Catrin has also collaborated with a range of governmental and non-governmental actors internationally to share examples of best practice in immigrant integration and language policies from Catalonia and Wales.

In 2018, Catrin (along with Drs Elin Royles and Huw Lewis) was awarded Aberystwyth University’s ‘Exceptional Impact in Social Science, Arts and Humanities Research’ award. 

Catrin convenes the Migration Research Wales Network (WISERD) with Dr Rhys Dafydd Jones (DGES, Aberystwyth University).
