Laura Cleton is a PhD researcher in Political Science. Her project relies on feminist intersectionality theory to unravel the ways the Dutch and Belgian authorities legitimize the expulsion of undocumented migrant children by centring the intertwinement of discursive "boundary work" with actual "bordering practices". Previously, she worked as a junior lecturer (University of Amsterdam) and junior researcher (Utrecht University). Her research interests include feminist migration studies, detention and deportation, intersectionality, migration politics and family migration.
