Research

My research interests include nationalism and identity politics, as well as the politics of transition from communism in Eastern Europe. Growing out of my work on nationalism and the politics of exclusion, my research has recently focused on two complementary directions: migration, mobility and refugee issues, on the one hand, and issues concerning discrimination and intolerance, on the other. I have published on the extreme right, nationalism, European identity and Romanian politics. My current research project investigates agential reflexive mediation of structural conditionings and the role of social networks in the context of transnational mobility.
