Camille Gardesse's research focuses on welcoming politics and practices, including the processes and tools offered and applied to asylum seekers. Her research also focuses on the politics of relocation and mobility through housing, on cohabitation and on the trajectories, experiences and whereabouts of people relocated to small and mid-sized cities. More broadly speaking, Camille Gardesse studies the involvement of inhabitants in urban planning.
