For the newly funded MAVI project two new members have joined SIK this August: Norma Wong at the post-doctoral position, and Josh Dickstein in internship.
Norma came to Stavanger from Hong Kong 4 years ago. She has earned her PhD from the Department of Politics and Public Administration from the University of Hong Kong in 2014. With her expertise on non-profit management as well as quantitative methodologies in political science, Norma will contribute mainly to the collection and analyses of quantitative data in the research, and also help in overall project management.
Norma has written her doctoral thesis on the strategies of grass-root women organizations, and has the ambition to build up an academic career in the field of civil society studies.
Josh Dickstein is an international Norwegian, with parents from South Africa and the United States. Josh completed a bachelor’s and master’s degree in psychology before changing his field of focus to refugee migration and the politics of European integration. He is currently enrolled in EMMIR: European Masters in Migration and Intercultural Relations, which is a two-year intensively broad and international interdisciplinary master’s program.
As an intern at SIK from August through September, Josh will be contributing to the MAVI project by facilitating in recruiting interviewees and structuring questions, as well as conducting interviews and participating in writing the literature review.
