Dr Amrita Limbu


I am a Research Fellow with the Making it to the Registers project based at the Centre for Law and Social Justice, School of Law. In this role, I am involved in archival research and qualitiative research exploring the lived dimensions of the regulation of global migrant healthcare workers in the UK.

Research interests

I am interested in migrant stories and experiences, and experiences of transnational family life owing to migration and living away from family. My PhD research examined how diverse migration conditions shape and influence the emotional and affective experiences of migration and transnational family life across two migration pathways of education migration to Australia and labour migration to Qatar from Nepal.

My research interests are migration, labour, transnational families, emotions, affect.
