University of Bristol Law School

Dr Rachel Pougnet is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Bristol Law School (ESRC postdoctoral fellow). Her research examines the interplay between citizenship, national security, and state-led policies concerning inclusion and exclusion (the “politics of belonging”) through the practice of citizenship deprivation. She is particularly interested in the role of constitutional structures and what these might do to enable or restrict the method and frequency of citizenship deprivation in such cases.
