Biography

Ioanna Tsoni is a PhD candidate in the Migration, Urbanisation and Societal Change (MUSA) program at Malmö University. Her ethnographic research explores the paths of irregular migration throughout Europe, and the encounter of migrants and refugees with various borders and border-actors throughout their journeys. She develops and teaches the course “European Refugee and Asylum Law” while giving lectures and presentations on refugee-and border related issues to various audiences around the world.

Ioanna has been active in the field of migrant and refugee welfare and relief under various capacities for more than a decade. She has volunteered, worked for and consulted various NGOs and research institutes in Greece (Doctors of the World, Doctors without Borders, UNHCR, National Center of Social Sciences, Institute for the Research of Migration and Diaspora, Greek Council of Refugees, Migrants’ Social Center etc.); Scotland (Fast Forward) and Sweden (Refugees Welcome, Asylgruppen). In 2012 she founded the NGO ‘Dromas’, that specialized in streetwork among vulnerable migrant communities in the center of Athens.

In December 2015 she volunteered for a month on the frontline of refugee rescue operations in Lesvos, both with a lifeguard association, as well as through the Doctors without Borders/Greenpeace sea rescue operations.
