About me

I am Research Professor in migration and transnationalism studies at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and previously Director of one of our research departments. My staff page at PRIO contains more information about my research. I live in Oslo with my wife Heidi and our two children.

You can most easily reach me by e-mail: jorgen@prio.org. Unfortunately, I often struggle with the deluge of e-mail and have a long back log of unanswered messages, but I do my best.

If you are interested in coming to PRIO as a visiting researcher or intern, or wish to explore possibilities for employment at PRIO, please read our FAQ pages.
