Description of research and teaching

Sanna Saksela-Bergholm Ph.D. (Sociology, University of Helsinki) is a postdoctoral researcher at the Swedish School of Social Science at the University of Helsinki. She explores the inclusion of migrants both within a local and transnational context. Her current study focuses on Filipino labour migrants’ inclusion to the Finnish society and to their transnational ties back home. She analyses the role of social resources and networks in the lives of the migrants and their family members still living in the Philippines. Her current study is part of the Academy Finland project ‘Transnationalism as a Social Resource among Diaspora Communities’. Saksela-Bergholm has planned and taught MA-level courses such as ‘Dynamics in Ethnic Relations’ (2015; 2016) and ‘Immigration and International Migration’ (2013; current). She has studied migrants’ participation and inclusion to the receiving society by focusing on the following topics: the role of migrant associations; local and transnational practices; migrants’ access to informal and formal social protection; migrants’ access to labour market.
