Daniel Silberstein








Daniel Silberstein is a PhD Candidate in International Relations at the department of Economic History and affiliated to the Stockholm Graduate School of International Studies.

The ever-increasing production and dissemination of images in the international sphere has situated images as a central issue in the production of knowledges and discursive formations. Daniel Silberstein’s dissertation examines how migrants and borders are discursively framed through images in Frontex documents during the period 2010-2015. Identifying three themes, the dissertation examines how bodies are appropriatedlife and death is framed and surveillance is communicated at EU’s external borders and how these practices can be understood as connected to overarching logics that frame these issues. 

Daniel Silberstein holds a BA in International Relations from Stockholm University and an MSc in Gender, Development and Globalisation from the London School of Economics. Prior to joining the department of Economic History and the Stockholm Graduate School of International Studies, Daniel worked with development issues focused primarily on Eastern Europe and Southern Caucasus.
