Vanessa Barker

Vanessa Barker is Associate Professor (universitetslektor) of Sociology at Stockholm University.

I moved to Sweden to work on a new project about immigration and penal order in Europe. My research examines how immigrants and ethnic minorities have been caught up in conflicts over global integration, national belonging, and multiculturalism that are often expressed through the increased criminalization and penalization of perceived others.

I completed my PhD in Sociology at New York University, was a Visiting Fellow at the Law and Public Affairs Program, Princeton University (LAPA), and worked at Florida State University (FSU) before joining the faculty at Stockholm University in 2010.
