Personal profile

Research

My PhD project researches the presence and function of racial and religious categories in counter-radicalisation policies. Specifically, I investigate if, how, and because of which factors national Western European counter-radicalisation policies racialize certain, especially religious, groups, taking Swiss and Dutch policies as my case studies.  The research is based on literature from the fields of Critical Race Studies and Critical Security Studies, and uses qualitative content analysis as well as semi-structured interviews as its methods. By discovering similarities and differences between the policies, it aims to describe contingencies in processes of racialisation, securitization, and discrimination. It is by knowing these type of contingencies that we are more likely to be able to correct and prevent unintended harmful processes with regard to counter-radicalisation policies.
