Laura Stielike

My research interests include migration and development, labour and student migration, diaspora studies, gender and migration, postcolonialism, intersectionality, politics of memory, institutional racism, discourse and apparatus analysis, governmentality, and Cameroon.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS) at the University of Osnabrück (Germany). I recently completed my PhD in political science at Freie Universität Berlin. My PhD thesis studies the apparatus of migration and development with a focus on Cameroonian migrants in Germany. As teaching assistant for the Chair of Gender and Diversity Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, I have taught courses on migration theory, postcolonial studies and discourse analysis. I studied political science at Freie Universität Berlin and at Sciences Po Paris. In my master‘s thesis I researched the colonial continuities of German development cooperation in the era of good governance. I have also worked in development organisations in Cameroon, China and Germany.
