Project Leader Growing up in a Warming World: The Politics, Ethics and Aesthetics of Youth Activism for Climate Justice. Associate Senior Lecturer at Tema Child Studies.

Jonathan Josefssons research can be divided into two main strands; children, migration and claims of asylum and children’s political representation. Common to these strands is that they both aim at studying societal challenges about children, citizenship and politics. Children make up about 30% of the world’s population, thus forming a significant part of the people who are affected, and participants in, national and international politics. In his research, Jonathan Josefsson want to contribute to our knowledge of how children are made objects of politics and how children and young people act politically and raise claims to political representation in local, national and global contexts.
