DGS Dissertation Award for Hannah Pool
In September 2022, Hannah Pool was honored with the Dissertation Award of the German Sociological Association (DGS) during its 41st Congress in Bielefeld. The 1,000-euro award for “‘Doing the Game’: The Moral Economy of Coming to Europe” brings with it the opportunity for Pool to publish a paper on her dissertation in Zeitschrift für Soziologie. The award is the latest of many accolades for the dissertation, which traces the migration trajectories of people leaving Afghanistan for Western Europe via Iran, Turkey, Greece, and the Balkan route. Hannah Pool has been a senior researcher at the MPIfG since October 2022.
