A Typology of Statelessness

Before starting my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, I took an MA in International Studies at Seoul National University, and a BA in Philosophy and Business Studies at the University of Mannheim. I was an exchange student at the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies in 2012. Since 2019, I've been an associate member of the “European Network on Statelessness” and a co-chair of the “Normative Theory of Immigration Working Group” which is an international collective of scholars working at the intersections of migration studies, policy studies, and political theory.
