Profile

Biography

Before I joined the Department of Government as DAAD lecturer, I was a postdoctoral researcher and research associate at the Department of Political Science and Sociology at the University of Bonn (Germany). In my dissertation, I developed a concept of solidarity and addressed the question of solidarity in the asylum system of the European Union, including a closer look on the so-called refugee crisis. After receiving my doctorate in 2019, I took a one-and-half-year sabbatical. I have led research projects on migration governance in Southern Africa as well as on the migratory movements from Africa to Europe during the Arab Spring. My research and teaching focuses on the European Union’s political system and functioning, its asylum and border control policies, and the salient questions of solidarity and the rule of law. Germany’s political system and the country’s role in the EU are also within my area of expertise. I am co-editor of the Forced Migration Studies Blog (https://fluchtforschung.net/home/about-the-blog/) and chair of the working group 'Europe' of the German Network for Forced Migration Studies.
