My main area of research is normative political theory. I have worked mainly on normative theory and governance of migration, in particular temporary migration. My interest include theory if transnational justice and democratic theory. I write on migration and temporary labour migration, migrants’ voting rights, the role of cities in migration, citizenship, and populism. I have an interest in state policies about women’s bodies, especially in relation to health and development policy. My latest project is a book on the political theory of cyberpolitics.
