intersections of feminist security studies, critical urban studies and
decolonial theory with a focus on Latin America. With an
interdisciplinary background and degrees in urban studies (Malmö
University) and gender studies (University of Vienna), she is interested
in bringing feminist security studies and urban studies into dialogue.
Josefa is at the final stage of her doctoral studies in political
science/critical security studies. In her PhD thesis, she investigates
how race, gender and class are constitutive of how favela residents in
Rio de Janeiro experience (in)security in their everyday lives.
