PostDoc Researcher at the Department of European Ethnology and in the subproject „The Mobilization of Law through/as Collectivization? Anti-discrimination and equalities law as institutional and political practice“


In my research, I am interested in what difference it makes if people advocate their specific concerns with legal measures. Especially for those people who have been denied recognition as equal citizens, the reference to law holds great promises. In my case study I focus on antidiscrimination law and social participation rights and ask how advocacy groups for people with disabilities use those rights to accomplish participation and diminish exclusion.
