Academic interests

My main academic interests lie in the intersection between migration and citizenship. In my PhD project, I explore the Norwegian immigration authorities' practice of revoking citizenship. Empirically, this is tackled from two different angles: on the one hand, I study the political rationale behind the practice. On the other hand, I study people's experiences of having their citizenship at risk. Theoretically, the project aims at advancing our understanding of the dynamic relationship(s) between immigration control, citizenship and national membership.
