Project management

Michael Janoschka, Marie Curie postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre of Human and Social Sciences of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Madrid (2008-2010), Project leader of EURO_CITI.

Michael Janoschka is graduate geographer from the Humboldt-University of Berlin (2002) and received his Ph.D. (Dr. phil.) at the University of Frankfurt (2007).

His current research interests mainly focus on migration processes in a globalized world and the role of identity politics and citizenship practice in geographical and political conflicts.

Another spotlight of his research lays on theoretical discussions of the consequences of globalization and the investigation of local and regional governance systems within fragmented urban regions. Furthermore, he works urban transformation processes and governance, identity politics in shrinking cities and strategies of private urban governance.

Michael Janoschka developed research activities both in- and outside Germany, for instance, carrying out an array of fieldwork and empirical studies in Latin America and in Spain. He was awarded with several grants to support his research activities and has been an invited lecturer and research fellow at different universities of Latin America, Spain and Germany.
