Sarah Werner Boada

Assistant Professor



I joined the Department of Sociology as a Marie Skłodowska–Curie Postdoctoral Fellow (EUTOPIA-SIF COFUND) in 2022 and as an Assistant Professor in 2023. Previously, I was a Visiting Lecturer at the Department of Gender Studies as well as a tutor/instructor at the Roma Graduate Preparation Program of the Central European University (Vienna, Austria).

Prior to joining academia, I worked in the fields of gender violence and children’s rights in collaboration with various intergovernmental and umbrella organisations.

I am a member of the British Sociological Association, the International Association of Maternal Action and Scholarship (IAMAS), and the French-speaking research network on gender violence, VisaGe.


My current research project, ACReDIS, examines decisions to remove children from Romani and Traveller families in England and Spain.
