Dina Kiwan

Dina Kiwan is a Professor in Comparative Education at the University of Birmingham. Her research focuses on citizenship and inclusion, and is interdisciplinary and comparative in scope. Her interests centre around sociological and politico-philosophical examinations of inclusive citizenship through the lens of education policy, naturalization policy and migration policy, in particular in the context of pluralist / multicultural societies, and also societies in conflict. Her work engages with the inter-relationships between theory, research, policy and practice. Her interests in critical policy analysis are complemented by an interest in how those deemed to be ‘marginalised’ and vulnerable’ constitute themselves as political actors. Publications include Kiwan (2008). Education for Inclusive Citizenship (Routledge), and Kiwan, D. (ed). (2013) Naturalization Policies, Education and Citizenship: Multicultural and Multination Societies in International Perspective (Palgrave Macmillan).
