Emre Eren Korkmaz is a Departmental Lecturer in Migration and Development at the ODID, where he teaches on the MSc in Migration Studies.
From October 2016 to September 2018, he was a British Academy Newton International Fellow/postdoctoral researcher at ODID. He was also a junior research fellow at St Edmund Hall (2017-20) and a Research Associate at the Centre for Technology and Global Affairs of the Department of Politics and International Relations (2018-20)
Dr Korkmaz was awarded his PhD by Istanbul University’s International Relations PhD Programme in June 2016. He completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education at the University of Oxford’s Centre for Teaching and Learning in May 2020.
In recent years, he has been driven by a passion for examining the social and political impact of new digital and frontier technologies on migration. Before his current studies on “new technologies and migration”, his established track record in research covered two thematic areas: the place, visibility and status of migrants in the public sphere, and the politics of industrial relations, focusing mainly on the sustainability policies of global corporations in global supply chains on the employment of refugees.
