About Lisa Kerker

My research areas include public law, migration law and human rights law. I am particularly interested in research on family migration, asylum, gender and asylum/migration, and domestic violence.
My doctoral research project in public law concerns the legal situation for women family migrants who are subjected to violence in intimate relationships upon migration to Sweden; violence in a relationship constituting the basis for a temporary residence permit. The project investigates and analyses the role legislation on family migration plays and could play in protection from such violence.
I am connected to research programmes and networks such as the Lund/Uppsala Migration Law Network (L/UMIN), Law and Vulnerabilities and The Norma Research Programme at the Faculty of Law at Lund University.
I teach within the fields of migration law, administrative procedure, law and gender, and gender studies. I am a course director of the course “Swedish migration law” at advanced level at the Master of Laws Programme, Lund University.
