Liselot Casteleyn

Liselot Casteleyn (she/her) is a doctoral researcher (FWO) at the Migration Law Research Group. She graduated as a Master of Science in Criminology (2017) and a Master in Conflict and Development (2019). During her studies, she discovered her passion for critical social research, which is reflected in her theses on the demonized Arab-European League and the resilient Kenyan LGBTIQ+ movement. Before starting her doctoral research, Liselot worked as a scientific researcher at the Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy (IRCP) at Ghent University. Later, she had the opportunity to get to know and work for two socially engaged organisations, first as a job councellor for vzw JES and later as a staff member for HUURpunt vzw. Her current research project is guided by prof. Ellen Desmet and prof. Marlies Casier, and focuses on the complexity of the Belgian asylumprocedure on the ground of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI).
