Antje Ellermann specializes in comparative politics and comparative public policy, with a regional focus on Europe and North America. She is currently working on two major research programs in the area of immigration, both funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (for more details, see personal website). Her past research, funded by the U.S. Social Science Research Council, focused on the comparative politics of deportation and the problem of state coercion and migrant resistance in liberal states. Beyond the field of migration studies, Ellermann works and teaches on questions of state development, comparative public policy, and gender. She serves on the editorial boards of Politics & Society and the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies and is the newsletter editor of the APSA section on Migration and Citizenship.
