Daniel Naujoks focuses primarily on issues related to international migration and development, homeland-diaspora relations and forced migration studies. He further concentrates on sustainable development, transnational studies, gender, human rights, citizenship theory, as well as on questions of inclusion and exclusion in host countries.
He has published widely on the effects of migration on social, economic and political development, ethnic identity and the role and genesis of public policies. His book ‘Migration, Citizenship, and Development. Diasporic Membership Policies and Overseas Indians in the United States’ (2013, Oxford University Press) examines how country-of-origin citizenship affects migrants activities and attitudes, such as naturalization, remittances, investment, philanthropy, return migration, political lobbying, and transnational belonging.
In addition, Naujoks regularly advises governments and various United Nations agencies on issues of migration, diaspora engagement, displacement, and development. His advisory actvities include projects with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Bank, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, International Labour Organization (ILO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), and UNICEF.
The regional focus of his academic research is South Asia, the U.S. and Europe. However, he has conducted analyses and led projects in South America, North and West Africa, as well as in South-East Asia.
Naujoks holds a Ph.D. in political science and political economy from the University of Münster and a law degree from Humboldt University in Berlin.
