Professor Jean-Pierre Cassarino holds a Ph.D. in social and political sciences, awarded in 1998, by the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence. Previously, he studied political science at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Aix-en-Provence where he specialized on the Middle East and North Africa region. He has lived and worked in Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia.

He joined the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair  as Senior Research Fellow on 1. September 2018. Prior to this, he was part-time professor at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the EUI where he supervised and managed interdisciplinary research projects on migration matters, mobilizing EU and non-EU partner institutions (Middle East, Africa and the Caucasus). In the course of his academic career, he has also worked for the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Prof Jean-Pierre Cassarino has more than fifteen years of experience in comparative policy research. His research interests focus on patterns of international cooperation and modes of norm diffusion and policy transfers in dynamic regional consultative processes, especially with reference to the "management" of migration and borders. He is most interested in comparatively analyzing policy design and implementation as well as in how policy transfers are administered (and often readjusted) through processes of bilateral and multilateral consultations between the EU and third countries. This analytical scope has often structured his approach to policy analysis and state-to-state cooperation while highlighting the gaps that may exist between reciprocal policy commitments in international relations and effective actions, as well as between intentions and contingencies.
