PhD Project

Syrian Kurds and Politics of Citizernship: Between Stateelessness and Displacement 

Focusing on life narratives of stateless Kurds from Syria in Sweden and Germany, the project examines politics of citizenship between home and exile interrogating solutions pursued for solving ‘the problem of statelessness’.  Grounded in stateless standpoint epistemology,  the study unpacks the legacy of statelessness in the current context of forced migration and its socio-political impact on constructions of identity and belonging.

Theoretically, the project broadly draws on theories of exclusion, forced migration, standpoint epistemology and identity.
