Maria Petäjäniemi

Introduction

My PhD-research focuses on asylum seekers’ everyday lives in Northern Finland. I am interested in the implicit, discursive norms regarding people positioned as asylum seekers. The research produces longitudinal knowledge about the everyday experiences of young men seeking asylum.
