DPhil, University of Oxford
Esra Kaytaz is currently working on her DPhil in Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford where she previously read Archaeology and Anthropology (BA) and Development Studies (MPhil). Esra’s doctoral research is focused on understanding how Afghan migrants and refugees in Turkey perceive and negotiate risks and uncertainties related to their migratory choices in Turkey. She completed her fieldwork in January 2012. Her master’s research was similarly based on understanding the decision making processes of Christian convert Iranian asylum seekers in Turkey. Esra has worked for the Helsinki Citizen’s Assembly Refugee Advocacy Program in Turkey providing legal aid in the field of detention and refugee status determination. Esra has also been a researcher for the Global Migration Governance Program at the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, with particular focus on ‘survival migration’ in the African context.
