Research interests

With her background in ethnology and cultural anthropology she has abundant research experience in migration studies and a history of working as a project coordinator and manager. Using different methodological approaches she has carried out several extensive fieldwork researches (in Australia, Argentina, Germany, Norway and Slovenia) and presented the outcomes on several conferences and in the form of scientific reports, articles and a book. In her work she is dealing with problems of return migration, migration as cultural process, labour migration, identifications and representation of migrants, and most recently with mobility of artist and cultural professionals.

Kristina has coordinated groups of researchers at the partner institution in two LLP projects and one project financed by SEE Transnational Cooperation programme. Independently she has managed one concluded and one running project on posted workers, financed by the EaSI program, Progress axis. She was the co-organizer of the national foresight exercise part of the SEEMIG project and is co-author of the several reports and a handbook on labour migration/mobility. Kristina was also co-editor and later Editor in Chief (2010-2012) of the main national scientific journal in migration studies.

She is actively involved in Slovenian Ethnological Society and European Association of Social Anthropologists.
