Shreya Bhat

Year of Enrollment: 

Shreya Bhat is pursuing a PhD in Comparative Gender Studies at the Central European University. Her research explores how Nigerian women, following their economic migration to Southern European countries, transfer forms of care and informal social protection to their households in Nigeria, and continue to be a part of the family economy while living in a transnationally split arrangement. She employs the combined strength of multi-sited ethnography and oral history to conduct this inquiry. Broadly, her research interests include transnationalism, gender and migration, irregular migration from West Africa, remittances, bordering practices and migration governance along the Central Mediterranean Route. In the past, she has worked with migrant sex workers, non-governmental organisations and community based organisations in India in the capacity of a social worker.
