Statelessness, forced migration and identity

By analyzing life narratives of (de)nationalized Syrian Kurds who have gone through these transitions and experiences, my research interrogates discourses of the acquisition of citizenship as a solution to eradicate ‘the problem of statelessness’ and/or foster inclusion. Using an intersectional lens, I further aim to unpack the legacy of statelessness and displacement within varying constructions of identity and belonging.

Theoretically, my research interests are situated within the body of theories on exclusion, forced migration and identity.
