Julija Sardelic is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of of Law and Social Justice, University of Liverpool. Her research encompasses broader themes of citizenship and migration, but she particularly focuses on the legal status of marginalised and vulnerable minorities in Europe (such as Romani minorities, refugees, legally invisible and stateless persons).
