Diversity and Migration in Global Cities: Human Rights as a Source of Trust and/or Control

Lisa Roodenburg is exploring the human rights discourses in the context of different forms of migration. International human rights law is used and reconstructed in different ways by municipal governments, NGOs and migrant groups when they engage with questions on how to address the phenomenon of urban migration. Lisa’s research has a strong empirical component, as her research builds on fieldwork in three cities: Amsterdam, Buenos Aires and Hong Kong.
