Syrian Kurds and Politics of Citizenship: Between Statelessness and Displacement 

Focusing on life narratives of stateless Kurds from Syria in Sweden and Germany, I critically examine politics of citizenship between home and exile interrogating 'solutions' to the problem of statelessnessGrounded in stateless standpoint epistemology, my study aims to unpack (the legacy of) statelessness within the current context of forced migration and its socio-political impact on constructions of identity and belonging.

Theoretically I draw from theories of citizenship, forced migration, standpoint epistemology and identity.
