Christina Hansen received her PhD in International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) from Malmö University in 2019. Her doctoral dissertation connects and bridges urban and migration studies, while investigating migration, urbanisation, and societal change in Malmö. In particular, Hansen’s work examines how migration and the neoliberal transformation of urban space are perceived and negotiated, using ethnographic methods and her own experiences of activism, with a focus on the collective actions of radical left activists and everyday interactions in public space. She focuses on the practices of radical activism that may resist processes of displacement and dispossession by constructing alternative socio-economic structures and practices of commoning.
