Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Liverpool

Julija is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Law and Social Justice, University of Liverpool. Previously she was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute and a CITSEE Research Fellow at the School of Law, University of Edinburgh.
Her research encompasses broader themes of citizenship and migration, but she particularly focuses on the legal status of marginalized and vulnerable minorities in Europe (such as Romani minorities, refugees, legally invisible and stateless persons). At the School of Law and Social Justice she is conducting a socio-legal analysis on the impact of the 'refugee crisis' on understandings of multiculturalism and diversity in Europe.
From September 2017, she will be a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow at the University of Leuven, where she will work on a project entitled "Invisible Edges of Citizenship: Re-Adressing the Position of Roma in Europe".
Her more recent publications include: "No child left behind in the European Union: The position of Romani children" (Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, 2017), "The position and agency of the ‘irregularized’: Romani migrants as European semi-citizens" (Politics, 2016) and Romani minorities and uneven citizenship access in the post-Yugoslav space" (Ethnopolitics, 2015).
