Prof. Dr. Gilles Reckinger
Intercultural Communication and Risk research @ University of Innsbruck.
Gilles grew up on the Luxembourgish-Belgian border. He studied in Graz, located at the time near the external European border. The privilege of possessing a passport which permits free movement across borders, denied to many migrants, sparked his interests in the dynamics of the EU’s external borders.
He studied social anthropology and is a professor at the University of Innsbruck. In his work he focuses on life stories and the everyday lives of people living on both the borders of Europe and the margins of society.
His long term anthropological research on Lampedusa “Begegnungen am Rande Europas” (Peter Hammer Verlag) was granted the Theodor-Körner Award and the Bruno-Kreisky Award
