Wiktor Magdziarz is a third year MISH College student at Jagiellonian University and will graduate with a BA in sociology this summer. His dissertation deals with the social networks of Ukrainian immigrants working in Cracow. He is particularly interested in migration studies and intercultural relations. In order to develop his academic skills in this field, Wiktor works with the Multiculturalism & Migration Observatory in Cracow and conducts his own research. He believes that academic work, which he thinks of as a global ‘hive mind’, should work towards building better and more solidary societies while improving social policies and reducing inequalities. Wiktor has recently obtained offers from both the London School of Economics and University College London and plans to start his MA researching social policies next fall.
