My Research in a Nutshell

My doctoral research explored how ‘mobile subjects’ are constructed in the temporary migration scheme of Tier-5 Youth Mobility Scheme (YMS) under the Points-Based System of immigration to the United Kingdom.

I argue that hierarchies of privilege manifest in the young adults’ temporary migration, in which their experiences are polarised along ‘race’, class, gender, first language, nationality and historic-colonial links with Britain.
