Verena Bauer


For her master‘s thesis, Verena Bauer conducted problem-centred interviews with refugee and non-refugee participants in social mentoring projects and privately organised tandem relationships and analysed the (mostly) asymmetrical relationships. In her article for this special issue, she summarises her analysis and points to the discomfort of both refugee and non-refugee participants with persistent power asymmetries, particularly in decision-making processes. She identifies different strategies used by participants to navigate and secure agency within these relationships.
