About Ioana Florea

Background
Ioana Florea has a Masters degree in Anthropology and Community Development (2008) and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Bucharest (2011). Since 2017, she is Researcher at the Department of Sociology and Work Science at University of Gothenburg. She has taught seminars at the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, University of Bucharest; she also worked with the Department “Inequalities, Migrations and Territories” from the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology, University Institute of Lisbon (2010-2011).

Specialist Fields
Ioana has been researching on socio-spatial dynamics in poor neighborhoods in Romanian cities, youth experiences of outdoor public spaces marked by post-socialist transformations (her PhD project), and spatial processes of social differentiation. Since 2006, she has been involved with several grassroots organizations from Bucharest working on social and environmental justice, and the right to the city. Thus, most of the research projects she has been part of had an action or educational dimension.

Current research
"Housing, social mobilisations and urban governance in Central and Eastern Europe", funded by The Swedish Research Council FORMAS (contract 2016-00258_3). The project aims at critically investigating the nexus of urban governance, housing policy and housing protest in Bucharest, Budapest and Vilnius.
