valla34 (2)Ruben Andersson is an anthropologist and associate professor at Oxford University’s Department of International Development, working on migration, borders and security. He was previously a researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and is also an associated researcher at Stockholm University’s Department of Anthropology.

Ruben’s book Illegality, Inc.: Clandestine migration and the business of bordering Europe  (University of California Press 2014) gives an ethnographic account of the new social realities generated by Europe’s ‘fight against illegal migration’ along the continent’s southern shores. Ruben’s latest research project, financed by the AXA Research Fund, is concerned with risk and danger in international intervention, focusing on conflict-hit Mali and the wider sub-Saharan Sahel region. The research will be published as the book No Go World: How fear is redrawing our maps and infecting our politics in early 2019.
