Team Member, Transnational child-raising arrangements between Africa and Europe

Karlijn Haagsman
Karlijn Haagsman is a PhD student at the department of Technology and Society Studies since January 2010. She has obtained a Bachelor and Master degree in Cultural Anthropology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, and subsequently completed a 2-year Research Master termed ‘Migration, Ethnic Relations and Multiculturalism’ at the University of Utrecht.

Currently, I am participating as a PhD researcher in the project ‘Effects of transnational child-raising arrangements on life-chances of children, migrant parents and caregivers between Africa and Europe (TCRAf-Eu)’. My research within this project will focus on Nigerian and Angolan parents in the Netherlands and the effects TCRAs have on these parents’ life-chances (job performance, emotional wellbeing and health outcomes). I will be supervised by Valentina Mazzucato.
