Sofie Henriksen

I am a social anthropologist with research experience in the fields of migration, sex work, human trafficking and global humanitarianism. I hold a M.Sc. in Anthropology from the University of Copenhagen. For my PhD project "Corporate-Humanitarian Aid in the Migration Crisis", which runs from 2019-2022, I will study the role of corporations as humanitarian actors in the global migration crisis. The project is funded through a non-university PhD grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark and hosted by the Danish Institute for International Studies.
