The second edition of the ESPMI Guest Twitter Project welcomes practitioners and scholars from around the world to adopt the ESPMI twitter account (@ESPMINetwork) for one week to share information and thoughts on migration issues. Guest tweeters are globally based and come from a wide range of topical and geographical interests creating a very interdisciplinary and vibrant twitter platform. We hope to address migration as a global phenomenon that also has very different local realities and issues that can be addressed from a variety of different scopes of inquiry.

Our first tweeter is Ina Jahn @InaRehema
Week 1: October 31st-November 6th
Ina completed a BA in Social Anthropology and Development Studies at SOAS, University of London, and is a recent graduate of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations taught by University of Oldenburg, University of Stavanger and Makerere University Kampala. Motivated by a deep-seated interest in the complex issue of belonging and “home”, she conducted fieldwork on reburials from former IDP camps to home villages in post-conflict Northern Uganda. An anthropologist at heart, her research interests pertain to the study of forced migration, borderlands, cosmologies and concepts of belonging particularly focusing on East Africa. Ina also holds a M.Sc. degree in Nature, Society and Environmental Policy from Oxford University and has previously worked for the German Agency for International Cooperation in Namibia (2010-2011), and the Refugee Law Project in Uganda (2012). She is currently with the Land, Property and Reparations Division of the International for Migration (IOM) in Geneva, researching and devising strategies to address displacement-induced land and property rights violations, with a focus on the Middle East.
