There is a need to demystify migration and mobility
Dora Sampaio
Dora Sampaio holds a degree in geography from the University of Lisbon, where she specialised in international migration on her MA. She holds a PhD in human geography from the University of Sussex, and did post-doctoral research at the Max Planck Institute. Her work has contributed to uncovering the growing diversity behind the label “ageing migrant populations”, but also the plurality of their transnational practices, feelings of belonging, ways of looking at life and feeling at home in a migratory context. She is currently a professor of transnational mobilities at Utrecht University. She is the author of the book Migration, Diversity and Inequality in Later Life: Ageing at a Crossroads (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022), an ethnography of migrants ageing on the Azores islands.
