Jessica Schultz is a legal researcher based at the Chr. Michelsen Institute and UiB's Faculty of Law. Her recent work focuses on the concept of vulnerability in migration law, cessation of refugee status, refugee resettlement and temporary protection. She is currently lead researcher for the Norwegian Research Council-funded project: Temporary Protection as a Durable Solution? The ‘return turn’ in asylum policies in Europe (TemPro), which is a collaboration between anthropologists and legal scholars exploring how temporariness is produced in law and how it is experienced by refugees in Denmark, Norway, the UK and Germany. Together with Marry-Anne Karlsen, she edits the resource page on Interdisciplinarity in Migration Research. She also co-hosts, with Kari Anne Drangsland, the podcast Refugee Law and Refugee Lives.
