I am currently working on my doctoral dissertation, which is part of the larger project Theorising Risk, Money and Moralities in Migration (TRiMM). My case study focuses on Senegalese migration to Spain, involving fieldwork in Spain and Senegal.

PRIO Policy Brief
What images of Europe lie behind the wish to migrate? And who are the people who prefer to remain in their own country? A new policy brief, Who wants to go to Europe? (PRIO Policy Brief 04/2013) was launched at a breakfast seminar at PRIO today. Written by PRIO research director Jørgen Carling, the policy brief presents the results from a migration survey of 8000 people from 16 different areas within Morocco, Senegal, Turkey and Ukraine. The survey was conducted as a part of the research project 'Imagining Europe from the Outside (EUMAGINE)'.
