Primary research areas

Ahlam Chemlali’s research focuses on migration and border management, gender and violence, sexual and gender-based violence, slow violence, life in transit, migrants’ everyday lives, deportations and European migration politics. Chemlali’s geographic focus is on North Africa, specifically Libya, Tunisia and Morocco and Europe's Southern borders.

Current research 

Ahlam Chemlali’s research examines the politics and practices of border violence in contemporary European migration politics. Chemlali explores how the militarisation and externalisation of European border control to North Africa produces the everyday violence of the border and how this shapes gendered experiences. Her research project offers a unique ethnographic perspective on how West African migrant women in transit navigate and negotiate the violent terrains that characterizes the North African borderlands, with special attention to Libya and Tunisia.

At DIIS - Danish Insitute for International Studies Ahlam is a part of the project ‘Women on the Move’ which is concerned with the gendered aspects of irregular migration to Europe. Specifically, the attention is on women migrants in transit, and waiting in transit camps, along the African-European migration route, in Nigeria, Niger, Libya and Italy. The project is funded by Open Society Foundation, New York.
