Welcome to the website of Stefan Donati

Stefan Donati
I'm 33 years old and currently a student at the University of Basel in Switzerland, where I do a BA in social sciences and geography. My research interests include the manifold conjunction of these two areas, such as in urban research & planning, migration policy, food security, international political economy, and social order & violence.
Before my endeavour in academics, I've worked for more than ten years in various positions at Credit Suisse, Switzerland's second largest financial institution. Recently, I've completed a stage at INURA Zürich Institut, an organization for urban research. Currently I'm part of the project Offener Hörsaal, which supports refugee participation at the University of Basel.
When I'm not studying, I enjoy reading (fictional and non-fictional) books, having good discussions over a glass of wine, or doing some outdoor sports such as hiking. I'm also an avid independent traveller, having been in more than 25 countries around the world, including countries and territories at the Horn of Africa and in Central Asia.
Amongst others, my memberships include INURA (International Network for Urban Research and Action), Amnesty International Students Basel, and Urban Agriculture Basel.
