Evaluation sheet for departing Fellows

  1. What would you consider to be the major benefits of your stay at IWM?

The possibility to talk with colleagues who are coming from very different disciplines.

  1. Was the event programme of the IWM attractive and interesting for you?

Yes, absolutely. Of course some events were closer to my area of research but I have found the discussions very stimulating.

  1. Do you have any criticisms of any aspect of the Institute’s program and operations?
    Please include any suggestions for improvement.

Not really.

  1. Is there anything else you would like to let us know regarding your stay at the IWM?

I have felt at home from the very first day. It has been an absolutely marvellous time and a unique opportunity. I thank all of the permanent fellow and members of staff for their warm welcome. It has been a privilege to be here.

Final Report sheet for departing Fellows

As mentioned in the “Terms of Award” agreement, we would kindly ask you to submit your final report on your activities, travels, talks and accomplishments during your research stay. Please be as specific and concise as possible!

In particular, we may ask you to list books or essays that have been written or worked on at the IWM, that have either been published or accepted for publication or that you wish to submit for publication. Describe briefly the nature of the work and give names of publishers or publications, dates and other relevant facts.

We would be very grateful if you could provide us with a copy of your publication(s) for our library or, if this is not possible, contact our librarian with the publication details. We would also like to ask you to list any prizes or awards you have received or will receive, as well as any scholarships and grants you have received or will receive.


This period of research has been very fruitful and I have been mostly working on the paper on regional free movement of people law that I presented on 18 October. The paper is not finished yet and it will take sometime before I submitted for publication with a journal in 2021. Options include the European Journal of International Law or the American one.

Other than that, I have given a presentation at the University of Vienna on 5 October 2021 where I presented myself as a Guest fellow of the IWM. I have been working on another paper which I submitted for publication in September 2021. If finally admitted, I will certainly mention the IWM as well. The Journal is the Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies.
