About Isabell Schierenbeck

I am Deputy Head of Department and Professor in Political Science at the School of Global Studies (SGS). Alongside research, PhD supervision, and lecturing I am Deputy Head of Department with responsibility for research and research education. I also give lectures and consultations as an expert (on Middle Eastern politics) for radio, TV and the daily press.

Areas of interest
My main research areas are nation- and state building, democratization and political leadership, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and Israeli domestic politics. I also conduct research on the preconditions for integration policies (policy and practice) in a comparative perspective.


I have a long lasting interest in issues on research ethics and safety. I am one of the project coordinators of the SAFEResearch project (see http://gld.gu.se/en/research-projects/saferesearch/)


My earlier research includes research on international development cooperation and ownership in Rwanda and Ethiopia as well as barriers to care for patients suffering from mental illness (in South Africa and Rwanda). I have also conducted research in public administration with a special focus on street-level bureaucrats and immigrant clients (at Employment offices and Social welfare offices).

I am currently working with the following research projects:

Refugee Migration and Cities: Social Institutions, Political Governance and Integration in Jordan, Turkey and Sweden.
Together with Andrea Spehar (PI), Mine Eder, Kristen Kao, Ellen Lust, Josepha Wessels and Alexander Jung; financed by the Swedish Research Council (2019-2024).
