Tanja Bastia awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship

15 June 2016

She will continue her work on ageing and migration.

Dr Tanja Bastia has been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship to continue her work on ageing and migration. She was awarded £47,450 to carry out the work over 16 months.

 Her work focuses on population ageing which is one of the key challenges we are facing in the 21st century and migration is widely recognised as providing additional challenges to elderly care. Building on empirical findings from five regions in Bolivia, her research project will provide evidence to the highly differentiated consequences that migration has on the elderly population, in terms of gender, ethnicity, and class. The use of intersectionality to frame the analysis will add analytical value to current understanding of transnational ethics of care. The fellowship builds on Tanja’s current research by expanding data collection and providing time to write a monograph.
