Bastian Neuhauser

PhD Candidate
Urban Geography

Bastian Neuhauser studied social and political sciences at Humboldt-University Berlin, Sciences Po Paris and Tel Aviv University, and was a program assistant in the Beirut office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation. He has worked as a researcher at the Berlin Institute for Empirical Migration and Integration Research (BIM), and his interests include issues of integration of queer and migrant communities, urban inclusion, quantitative media and discourse analysis, and qualitative methods.


In his PhD-project at Utrecht University he regards questions of intersectional inclusion of queer migrant communities in European urban peripheries. On the cases of Berlin (Marzahn-Hellersdorf) and Paris (Seine-Saint Denis), he aims at uncovering how governance and policy approaches diversity outside the urban centers and how communities are simultaneously in- and excluded in these processes.
