Michelle Bellino

she/her Associate Professor, Educational Studies, University of Michigan School of Education

Michelle Bellino is an Associate Professor at University of Michigan. Her research centers on the intersections between education and youth civic development, in contexts impacted by armed conflict and forced displacement. Across diverse settings, she explores how experiences with violence, asylum, and peace and justice processes influence young people’s participation in schools and society, future aspirations, as well as educational access and inclusion. Her work on transborder movement draws on ethnographic methods and youth participatory action research in contexts of origin, first asylum, transit, and “destination” sites.
