Research Interests

Nora's research interests are in the field of citizenship and migration studies, and European politics more broadly. She is particularly interested in citizens’ attitudes towards and participation in national and European politics, and has recently turned to investigating the role of civil society actors in safeguarding citizenship at the national and European levels. She is currently serving as the Convenor of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) Standing Group on Citizenship (2017-20).

Nora is part of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for the Study of Transnational Europe (CESTE2) and is leading stream 2 on ‘Societal Actors and (trans)national networking in a disintegrating Europe'. As part of this project she is currently researching on everyday reflections of citizenship in the midst of Brexit by Central and Eastern European residents as well as activists working in the South of England.

As an extension of this project, Nora is starting a new interdisciplinary project with Dr Annabel Tremlett on Central and Eastern European families' citizenship perceptions, wellbeing and experiences of circular migration in the UK.

Nora has also been a member of the pioneering Qualitative Election Study of Britain (QESB) studies with Dr Kristi Winters (Gesis, Cologne), Dr Edzia Carvalho (University of Dundee) and Dr Thom Oliver (University of the West of England, Bristol) since 2017.


Nora's research has been published by Citizenship Studies, British Politics, and Manchester University Press. She has been a guest contributor for LSE British Politics and Policy blog, and was recently interviewed about what Brexit means for European citizenship and free movement by the BBC World Service. 

Nora received her PhD from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2015. Her PhD project explored the effects of free movement on young and educated citizens' perceptions of citizenship, identity and participation, using original focus group evidence collected in Sweden and the United Kingdom.
