Migration researchers on Twitter

twitter-bird-white-on-blueHere’s my list of migration researchers on Twitter – that is, people who do research on migration and share their ideas about it in English on Twitter. Many of them (myself included) tweet about other things as well, but I’ve restricted the list to people who will not flood your feed with chit-chat. (There are other migration-related twitter accounts too, such as research centres, journals, and NGOs, which are not included here.)

Below is an overview of members. Follow me, and you will be updated about new additions.

You’ll find the list with avatars and bios on Twitter. To the right is the Twitter feed from the list.

Have I missed anyone — academics who do research on migration and tweet about it? Let me know in the comments field. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for the tip, Wytzia. I have started following her (and you) but decided not to add her to the list for now. Looking at her tweets suggest that 80-90% are in Dutch. And her Twitter bio is in Dutch. There are other migration researchers I’ve left out because of the language. Perhaps I should expand the scope of the list, but for the time being I’ll keep it to people who tweet primarily in English.

    1. Thanks! For the list of migration researchers, I have decided only to have individuals. There are many good Twitter accounts of research networks, institutions and projects related to migration, which could perhaps make up a separate list.
