About the speaker
Dr Andreas Hackl is Lecturer in the Anthropology of Development at the School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh. He currently leads a two-year research project on digital refugee livelihoods and digital labour, which can be found online at: refugeework.net. Andreas has previously worked intensively in Israel/Palestine, both as an anthropologist and as a journalist. His anthropological research in the Middle East included work on cross-border solidarity activists in civil resistance struggles; on labour mobility and economic dispossession; on Palestinian citizenship and urban inclusion in Israel; on displacement and exile; on settler colonialism; and on the role of social mobility and migration in the global sustainable development agenda. As a journalist based in the Middle East, Andreas wrote regularly for The New Humanitarian (formerly IRIN News) and served as Jerusalem-based correspondent for Austrian, Swiss and German newspapers.
