Forskning

My research interests are citizenship, nation, globalisation, migration and asylum rights from an intersectional feminist perspective. I understand the issue of migration and migrants’ rights as a key point where issues of global inequalities, neoliberalism and militarism meet issues of nationalism/nativism, racism and sexism in the local and national contexts. I am especially interested in the ways in which restrictive European migration policies produce spaces of irregularity and deportability – and how those spaces are experienced and contested by migrants and activist networks. I also focus on the gendered experiences of the processes of exclusion and resistance. Empirically my focus lies in the area of migration rights as articulated in advocacy and activist movements/networks, as well as the experiences of migrants active in those networks and their experiences of national and European migration politics of control and categorisation. Epistemologically I explore the forms of knowledge produced through the practices and experiences of these movements and mobilisations for social change. My research interests also include antiracist feminism, nationalism, post-colonial theory, critical welfare studies and feminist methodological issues.
