Short presentation

I am a postdoctoral researcher with Migration Law focus at the Department of Law at Uppsala University. Prior to joining Uppsala, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Stockholm University (2017-2019). I am currently examining legal and social norms when unaccompanied children are granted refugee status. My research interests include migration law/policy, asylum conditions for child migrants, custodianship, "integration" (of migrants) aspects of social law and the development of the welfare state.
