My area of expertise includes a wide range of issues linked with the processes of shaping the national and transnational migration regimes. I have also strong interest in the processes through which “other(s)” is(are) constructed in societies, as well as in experiences of being the “other". I explore how processes of "othering" are interconnected with migrants' access to rights and resources. This focus of my studies lead me to the reflection on social inequality from the intersectional perspective. Currently I explore possibility to integrate this approach with the theory of structuration.
