Ojeaku's doctoral research focuses on anti-racism advocacy and anti-discrimination policies, supervised by Ilke Adam (IES) and Sophie Withaeckx (RHEA) . This research project aims to advance our understanding of anti-racism and the complex processes that generate racism using insights from critical race theory, black feminist theory and decolonial theory. It will focus on how anti-racism is practiced and the systems of oppression that shape anti-racist advocacy and policy development.
