Daniel Naujoks is the director a.i. for the International Organization & UN Studies Specialization at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. He has previously taught at The New School’s Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs and Jawarhar Lal Nehru University.

Diasporic Membership Policies and Overseas Indians in the United States’ (2013, Oxford University Press). His recent research sheds light on the integration of migration and displacement into public policies and the links to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and interagency cooperation between UN agencies. Dr. Naujoks regularly advises governments and international organzations—including UNDP, IOM, World Bank, ILO, UN-DESA, OECD, UN Women, UNESCWA, and UNICEF—on issues of migration, diaspora engagement, human rights, displacement, and development.
