Eilidh Beaton


I'm a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests lie in the areas of political philosophy and global justice - my specific focus concerns migration and integration of refugees and displaced people. My dissertation topic was inspired by working with Oxfam GB and the Refugee Council (UK) over the summer of 2017 on the role of UK refugee family reunion laws on refugee integration and sense of belonging.
