Lisa Pilgram joined Oecumene as Senior Project Manager in July 2010. In October she started her PhD at The Open University which will be closely linked to the research agenda of the project and which will be supervised by Prof Engin Isin and Prof Michael Saward.
Before joining the Oecumene project at The Open University, Lisa was a Research Fellow of the EUDO Citizenship project on access to citizenship in Europe. During her undergraduate studies in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Vienna, Lisa developed a strong interest in migration issues. She therefore joined a post-graduate programme on Migration and Ethnic Minority Law (SOAS) where she focused her research on UK and European law on family reunification and citizenship, as well as on legal issues affecting Muslim communities in Europe.
