    Migration has been a constant in my life , so it was maybe inevitable that it would be my chosen area of work and study. The following areas are of particular interest:
  • The Immigrant Identity - changing concepts og Home and Belonging. How migrant identities in the 21st century are being shaped by new technologies.
  • The key challenges in establishing Democratic Citizenship Programmes as a part of integration policy. Impact thereof on concepts of nationalism, secularism and multiculturalism.
