Iida Kauhanen


I am working as a doctoral researcher at the Mobile Futures project in Faculty of Education. My doctoral thesis focuses on exploring practices that hinder equal possibilities for participation in the lives of children and youth who once were seeking for asylum in Finland without their primary caregivers.
