School of Transnational Governance

Tomáš Jungwirth

Fellowship period: 7 January 2019 - 7 July 2019

Having a background in law, human rights and the Western Balkans, Tomáš Jungwirth has recently developed a strong passion for human migration and mobility. His interest is not merely an academic one. Rather, he strives to obtain a thorough understanding of the relevant laws and practices on the national, European and global levels, and to translate it into concrete policy recommendations in the face of current challenges. For the past two years, he has been doing advocacy on behalf of the Czech Consortium of Migrants Assisting Organizations, also collaborating with pan-European networks such as PICUM or CONCORD, and getting a foot in the UN-led process leading to the adoption of the Global Compact for Migration. He intends to make use of the fellowship at EUI to further study the interlinkage between migration governance and environmental matters, border regimes or demographic challenges, to develop his partnerships with policy-makers and experts in Europe and beyond, and to produce outputs capable of making a difference in the real world.
