Tamlyn Monson

Tamlyn
Tamlyn Monson‘s background is in research on migration into South Africa, its effects, and state responses to it, often in collaboration with colleagues from the African Centre for Migration and Society (ACMS). She recently completed a PhD at LSE, examining the complexities of established-newcomer relationships in the ‘threshold space’ of a large informal settlement bordering the township of Atteridgeville, South Africa.
Much of Tamlyn‘s published work has focused on ‘xenophobia’ and associated violence, with a particular focus on the normative orders and micro-political identities underpinning mobilization against foreigners, and their relation to state sovereignty and territoriality. In addition to her affiliation with the ACMS, she works on the MSc Social Development Practice at The Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL.
