About Karin Åberg

I am a Doctoral Candidate in International Law.

My dissertation topic, concerns the development of asylum law as expressed in EU law, under the ECHR and in national implementation. I specifically examine how law and legal expectations interacts with securitization and humanitarianist values.

My supervisors are Gregor Noll and Matilda Arvidsson.

I have a Swedish Law Degree from Lund University as well as an LLM in International Migration and Refugee Law. After graduating, I worked first as a legal advisor to refugees in Greece and then with advocating for undocumented migrants' human rights in Brussels.
