Roda Madziva is Assistant Professor in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham. Her research centres around migrant and refugee integration, exploring the ideological assumptions that frame discourses of inclusion and exclusion, and the extent to which they reveal racialised hierarchies of human worth. Her empirical work has focused on the use of evidence in immigration law, forced family separation, migrant employability, the integration of Syrian refugees in the UK and the links between migration and contemporary slavery.  

Current projects include an ESRC-GCRF funded study (as PI): ‘Combating Human Trafficking: The role of NGOs in the fight against Human Trafficking In Zimbabwe’ and a BA funded study (as CI): ‘Compounded exclusion: Education for disabled refugees in Sub-Saharan Africa’.
