Research Interests

Dr Sabina Stan's research interests lie in the areas of the EU's new economic governance in healthcare and labour and social movement reactions to it, as well as cross-border patient mobility, east-west intra-European migration, and healthcare privatisation. She is a reputed specialist in anthropological approaches to EU migrants' transnational healthcare practices, and healthcare reforms and informal healthcare practices in Central and Eastern Europe. She has developed several international research projects in the areas of transnational collective action in response 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 acted as sole or principal author of publications in international peer-reviewed journals such as Social Science and Medicine, Medical Anthropology, Labor History, European Journal of Industrial Relations, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Anthropologica, as well as with 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.
