The University of Gibraltar welcomes Isa Kleji from the Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands. Isa is currently conducting research into Brexit and the possible consequences for Gibraltar from a humanities perspective. Her studies focus on border relationships, self-determination, nationalism and free movement – core agendas of the University’s Institute for Gibraltar and Mediterranean Studies.
Isa received funding from the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme that supports the exchange of students, researchers and staff for education and training purposes. Her grant enables her to spend three months at the University to obtain research data and gain experience. Isa will be based at the Garrison Library, the University’s Associate Campus and be guided by Dr Jennifer Ballantine. She will also take part in the wider research culture at the University, by participating in the University’s research education and development activities and engaging with some of the University’s high profile research projects.
