Costanzo Sow


I feel like a citizen of the world. I’m German-Italian, my spouse is Senegalese and have lived in France for a decade, while also having traveled and worked in many different countries throughout my career. I received a merit-based scholarship from the Friedrich Ebert Foundation for my master’s, which I carried out at the University of Passau in Germany. I was subsequently awarded another scholarship from the foundation to pursue my PhD from the Technical University Munich—one of the German universities belonging to a cluster of excellence—which focused on migration studies from the perspective of human geography. In general, I consider myself to be a curious person and have always been interested in gaining broad perspectives on various issues. At the core of everything I do is an overarching passion to make a positive difference in this world.
