Tiger began her DPhil in October 2021. A political geographer, her research examines the intersection between peace, law, and urban space, and is funded by the ESRC. With a focus on Vancouver’s ‘City of Reconciliation’ framework, her fieldwork will involve ethnographic research with civil societies and governance actors in British Columbia, Canada. Tiger holds an MSc with distinction in Migration Studies from the University of Oxford, where she was awarded the Examiner’s Prize for highest overall achievement. Her master’s dissertation was entitled ‘Another politics? Climate activists, migration, and the search for justice’. It explored the political imaginations and prefigurative actions of climate activists in Vancouver. By presenting and critically speaking back to their construction of ‘another politics’ of climate migration – aligned with ideas of climate and migrant justice – it raised questions around the scope and shape of political alterity in contemporary times of ‘crisis’. Prior to the MSc, Tiger completed a BA degree in Geography from the University of Oxford before teaching Geography at a secondary school in North-East London.
