Personal profile

Jo's research focuses on urban political responses to migration and cultural difference in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. She is particularly interested in national policy frameworks, multiculturalism as an institutional response and the impact of network and capacity building. Jo has a BA in French and German and an MA in Cultural Geography (Research). She was awarded a PhD by Royal Holloway University of London for her thesis entitled 'Networked Diversity and the Development of the 'Frankfurt Model': Institutional responses to multiculturalism in the work of the Amt für multikulturelle Angelegenheiten'. This drew on substantial embedded participatory and qualitative research in one of the main institutional components of the Frankfurt approach: the Amt für multikulturelle Angelegenheiten (Office of Multicultural Affairs / AmkA). Methodologically, this research advances debates on the role of translation in qualitative research.
