In the Sociology of Law Department, Sherzod Eraliev is currently running the research project “Informality, Migrant Precarity and Exploitation in Nordic Context: Uzbek Migrant Workers in Sweden and Finland” (IMPEX), funded by Forte – Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare. This ethnographic study of immigrants explores (1) how, why and when migrants manoeuvre around the law and resort to the help of informal institutions; (2) how precarious working and living conditions reflect on the working life of migrants and impact their perceptions of the host society; and finally (3) what consequences these experiences and strategies have for the possibility to improve the working life of migrants in Sweden and Finland.
Sherzod is also conducting research on civil society institutions and digital media activism in non-democratic regimes, migration and authoritarianism in the Eurasian region.
