Former Research Assistant (postdoc) in sub-project E: “The Mobilization of Law through/as Collectivization? Anti-discrimination and equalities law as institutional and political practice” (funding period 1)
Institute for European Ethnology, Humboldt University Berlin
In my research, I am interested in what difference it makes when people assert their interests in a legal mode. The notion of having a right to something holds great promise, especially for people who have not been treated as equal citizens for a long time. In my case study, I look at anti-discrimination and participation law and how advocacy groups of people with disabilities in particular use it to create more participation and less exclusion for themselves.
