Academic Career and Research Interests

Anna-Christine Görg is a research associate in the EUParadox project and is responsible for the case study on Romania. As part of the project, she will use computational text analysis to investigate the discussion on the political consequences of emigration in Romanian online media. She is doing her PhD in political science at the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) on migration policy concerning labor migration for low-skilled occupations. The research analyzes the long-standing governance structures and the fluctuating impacts of economics, societal impacts, as well as domestic and international political processes.

Anna’s research interests include methodological questions. Therefore, she explores the possibilities of configurational, set-theoretic methods for migration research and, explicitly, the combination of cross-case and within-case analysis. Anna is a strong advocate of exchanging ideas and networking among early-career researchers. For this reason, she has collaborated with colleagues to establish various organizations, such as MIGRAKOLLOQ, a peer-to-peer colloquium focused on migration politics, and the Viadrina Ph.D. & Postdoc Network.

Before joining the EUF, she held a Ph.D. scholarship from the German Hans-Böckler-Foundation. She was the managing director at the Institute for Protest and Social Movement Studies (ipb) in Berlin. During her M.A. program in European Studies, she dealt extensively with Eastern Europe and the relations of the new EU member states and other Eastern European countries with Brussels. At that time, relations between Poland, Russia, and the EU were one of her main areas of interest, which she also deepened during her stays abroad in Krakow and St. Petersburg.
