Description of research and teaching

Research interests: Deportation policy, asylum, citizenship and borders, racism and the border regime, criminalisation of migration, migration justice movements. 

Current research: Governance of the 'deportation gap' within the German asylum system. The PhD project examines the everyday legal-bureaucratic violence and policing targeting failed West African asylum seekers in Germany. The intersection of diverse state institutions and practices comes to view from the perspective of the affected persons' knowledge and experience. Funded by Kone Foundation.

Korvensyrjä is also co-researcher in the interdisciplinary, activist research collective Culture of Deportation and was the research team coordinator in the project Welcome to Europe? realised by the collective and funded by Kone Foundation. It created an online archive which documents the German tradition of criminalising migration and the EU model of border externalisation, focusing on the knowledge and analyses generated in migrant self-organisation (http://cultureofdeportation.org/).

Korvensyrjä received her Master of Social Science degree in Social Science History in June 2015 (Excellent). She is currently doctoral student at the Department of Social Research (Sociology), Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Helsinki. She is also affiliated to the Centre for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism (CEREN).
