Mario Marset is an MSc student of International Migration and Public Policy at the London School of Economics at its European Institute. Currently, Marset is researching with the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a research institute at Syracuse University that uses data-gathering methods to study the U.S. federal government.

Marset’s research interests focus on studying border control, immigration laws, labor economics, and migration policy. His current work uses statistical and thematical analysis in researching the U.S. § 287(g) local immigration enforcement program. At the London School of Economics, Marset studies the labor economics of EU member-states facing allegations of breaching non-refoulement—a fundamental principle of international law—in their efforts of deterring irregular migration. This work inquires the economic motivations of investing large sums of their state budgets in developing enforcement infrastructure in third countries.

Marset is supported by the Drapeau research center’s grant and as the Law and Society Award recipient of 2021. He is an active member of the American Political Science Association where he presents his research.
