Profile: Franz Buhr started his academic track as an undergraduate student in international relations attending both the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and SciencesPo Paris. As an Erasmus Mundus master’s student, he developed a research project on the spatiality of immigrants’ home-making practices at three European universities: University of Amsterdam, University of Deusto (Spain), and University College Dublin. Currently a PhD student at IGOT-ULisboa and Marie Curie researcher within the framework of the INTEGRIM programme, Franz is working under the Work Package 4 – Urban integration, residential patterns and mobility. His research lies at the intersection between migration and urban studies and addresses the problem of integration as a product of the use of the city space.
