Onassis Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow: “The Greek Diaspora Project at SEESOX”

3 January 2017

We are pleased to announce the appointment of the Onassis Foundation Research Fellow at SEESOX and the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR), University of Oxford.

Manolis Pratsinakis will join SEESOX and DPIR in June 2017 for three years.

Manolis is currently the Marie Curie IF postdoctoral fellow at the University of Macedonia, Greece, studying the new crisis-driven Greek emigration. He was previously a visiting fellow at the School of Global Studies, University of Sussex (2016) and earlier he worked as a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Amsterdam (2012-2015).

Manolis will engage in advanced research on the politics, economy and society of Greece, supporting a new SEESOX project entitled “The Greek Diaspora Project: Homeland Ties in Times of Crisis”.

This exciting project will highlight, assess and analyse selective themes such as brain drain, social entrepreneurship, electoral and local politics, philanthropy, and the diaspora’s influence in the fields of education, health or culture.
