Introduktion af Alexandra Columban

Alexandra Columban joined CEPDISC on February 1st as a PhD Fellow. Alexandra's research project centers on the study of discrimination against Roma on the labor market from two angles: a philosophical and an empirical one. From a philosophical standpoint, she would like to conceptualize Roma discrimination and potentially distinguish it from other types of ethnic discrimination, and, empirically, she intends to test whether the high levels of labor force nonparticipation among Roma may also be attributed to discrimination in hiring. In doing so, she would also draw on her professional experience in the nonprofit sector, directly addressing discrimination and inequality in Romania.
