About Anja Karlsson Franck

I hold a PhD in economic geography from the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg but since March 2013 I work at the School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg.

My main research interests relate to gender, labor and migration - with a particular interest in how people maneuver and navigate both social and geographical borders.

In my PhD I explore Malaysian women’s room to maneuver in the labor market in the context of an export-oriented economy. After defending my thesis I have largely worked on research projects relating to migration. In particular Burmese labor migration to Malaysia and, in recent years, also migration to the European Union via Greece.

In my current research I focus on migration to and through Greece and Malaysia - directing particular attention towards Lesvos (in Greece) and Penang (in Malaysia). Through a project funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (http://anslag.rj.se/en/fund/48453) I take an interest in the relationship between international migration, securitization and corruption - placing explicit emphasis upon experiences of informality and petty/everyday corruption in relation to border control practices and detention in Malaysia and Greece.

Together with Gunilla Blomqvist at the School of Global Studies I am also working on a project on masculinities in the Gothenburg trade union movement - with a particular emphasis upon the port of Gothenburg. The project is financed by Anna Ahrenbergs fond.
