Research Interests

Dr. Sabina Stan's research interests lie in the areas of healthcare reforms and reactions to them in the form of informal practices and collective action in healthcare services, transnational migration and social inequalities, transformation of work in healthcare and agriculture. She is a widely known specialist in anthropological approaches to transnational migrant healthcare practices in the EU, and healthcare reform and informal healthcare practices in Central and Eastern Europe. She has developed several international research projects in the areas of transnational collective action responses to healthcare mobility and healthcare privatisation, European global care chains, east-west cross-border patient mobility, medical tourism, informatisation of Eastern European healthcare services, managerialism in healthcare in Canada and Europe, European east-west migration. Dr. Stan’s work has been published in Social Science and Medicine, Medical Anthropology, Labor History, European Journal of Industrial Relations, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Anthropologica, as well as with prestigious international academic publishers such as Routledge, Oxford, Berghahn, Rowman and Littlefield, and CNRS Editions (France). Dr Stan welcomes enquiries from prospective students who are interested in researching transnationalisation and globalisation processes as they relate to a range of healthcare related issues, in particular healthcare worker and patient migration, healthcare governance, inequalities of access to healthcare services, and collective action in healthcare.
