Associate Professor in Sociology, Lund University

Dalia Abdelhady is an Associate Professor at Lund University in Sweden where she worked since 2011. Her work features the application of postcolonial analysis to the sociology of migration. Following a comparative perspective, her work focuses on the meeting point between individual immigrants (and their communities) and institutions in receiving countries (such as schools, labor markets, media and political policies). She is the author of The Lebanese Diaspora: The Arab Immigrant Experiences in Montreal, New York and Paris (New York University Press, 2011), and co-editor of Refugees and the Violence of Welfare Bureaucracies in Northern Europe (Manchester University Press, 2020) and The Routledge Handbook of Middle East Diasporas (Routledge, 2021). Her journal articles were published in The Sociological Quarterly, Identities, Cultural Dynamics, Comparative Migration Studies, and International Journal of Intercultural Relations.
