It is particularly migration policies and the securitization of migration in the EU which have belonged to her research interests already during the studies.
Vera-Karin has published several academic articles and book chapters on the topic (e.g. her research article in English on the illegal employment of foreigners in the Czech Republic was published in the Journal of Identity and Migration Studies).
