Mag. Dr. Franziska Plümmer

Currently not an active member of staff

Franziska Pluemmer studied Political Science and Sinology at Tuebingen University and Beijing University. Before she joined EcoS, she worked as lecturer at the Chair of Greater China Studies at Tuebingen University. In 2019, she completed her PhD thesis on the regulation practices of the Chinese border regime. The thesis explores the legal, spatial and discursive articulations of the Chinese border regime. The thesis argues that the Chinese border regime creates zones of exception in the border area that allow selective integration of immigrants and other cross-border resources. The work builds on field work in Yunnan and Jilin Province. It is currently being revised for publication.
Generally, her research lies in the intersection of International Relations, Critical Security Studies, border studies, and Chinese studies. She focuses on the dynamics of the Chinese border regime and mobility regulation in the context of changing conceptions of citizenship and risk. Further research interests include migration in Asia, Asian regionalism, feminisms in Greater China, and Chinese theories of International Relations.
