Philipp Roman Jung is currently a Phd-Candidate in Migration Studies and a member of the GEARING-Roles project task force at the IGOT. For his doctoral thesis, which received funding from the FCT, he studies the mobility trajectories of Senegalese migrants in Brazil with a focus on migrants’ agency and the dynamic nature of migration aspirations and decisions. He has participated in the international project DiasporaLink, and the research project African societies facing global dynamics: Turbulences between external intervention, migration, and food insecurity. Former research addressed the migration from Senegal to Cape Verde and the reverse flow of remittances and its impacts on households in Senegal. His research interests are South-South migration, the linkage between migration and other forms of mobility, as well as economic and social aspects of migrant entrepreneurship. He has published book chapters and peer-reviewed articles in journals like Mobilities, Social Inclusion and Cadernos de Estudos Africanos.
