Représenter les étudiant·e·s extra-européen·ne·s dans le discours politique suisse (1900-2015) : garantie de compétitivité internationale ou concurrence à refréner ?

Gillabert, Matthieu ; Riaño, Yvonne

In: Géo-Regards, revue neuchâteloise de géographie (Les étudiants internationaux), 2017, vol. 10, p. 11-29

This article contributes to our understanding of how foreign students are represented in Swiss political discourses.

Migrer par amour : aspiration à l'egalité ?

Riaño, Yvonne

In: Terra Cognita. Revue Suisse de l'intégration et de la migration, 2014, vol. 24, p. 20-23
