Alexandra Pileggi Policy Intern University of Toronto School of Public Policy and Governance
Alexandra is currently a Masters of Public Policy student at the School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with the Ethnic and Pluralism Studies Program at the Munk School of Global Affairs. She holds an Honours Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminology from the University of Toronto (2014) and a Masters in Sociology from the University of Guelph (2016), where she critically analyzed the neoliberal nature of Canada’s immigration policies, specifically the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). Her research explores the evolution of Canadian immigration policy, global labour migration, and the political economy using a feminist lens. She is excited to be a policy intern at The Centre for Global Social Policy’s Gender, Migration and Work of Care Project, specifically as a member of the Knowledge Mobilization team, where she is developing policy briefs for the Centre’s partners, collaborators, and the general public.
