Refugee Review Editorial Team

Ina Jahn 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 adress displacement-induced land and property rights violations, with a focus on the Middle East.
