Yassine Khoudja has been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Sociology of the Goethe University since March 2019.

Yassine studied sociology as an undergraduate at the University of Göttingen and the University of California, San Diego. In 2013, he graduated from Utrecht University with a Master degree in “Migration, Ethnic Relations, and Multiculturalism”. From 2013 until 2017, he conducted his PhD-research at the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) and at the European Research Center of Migration and Ethnic Relations (ERCOMER) at Utrecht University. For parts of his project, he was a guest research at the Social Policy Department of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). After completing his dissertation, he worked as a Post-doc at ERCOMER.

Yassine’s research is situated in the fields of immigrant integration and gender inequality. He is particularly interested in economic and cultural integration processes of immigrants and their children as well as in the attitudes and beliefs that underlie gender imbalances in the realms of family and work. He has published amongst others in European Sociological Review, Journal of Marriage and Family, Social Science Research, and International Migration Review.
