Bishawjit Mallick


Visiting Research Fellow

Bishawjit Mallick has a PhD in Regional Science (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany). In his PhD thesis, he explores the societal changes in a regime of increasing climatic events, particularly he focuses on the cyclone-affected coastal communities in southwest Bangladesh. He identifies the manifestation of patron–client relationship in the society as a consequence of imminent flow of external aid and its consequences to spatial planning decisions. In addition, he explains disaster-induced migration and its consequences to the society as major findings.

Bishawjit is interested in ‘non-migration of people at risks’ in context of climate change adaptation (why don’t the people at risk migrate, and how do they survive at a vulnerable environment?) and the role of their short-term migration in shaping long-term non-migration. Currently, his research focuses on both qualitative and quantitative assessment of migrated livelihood of people in coastal Bangladesh.

Prior to joining IMI he was working as a guest researcher at IRS - Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning. He held a lecturer position at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) (Institute of Regional Science) and a position as research fellow with Vanderbilt University, USA (Integrated Social, Environment Change Project in Bangladesh).
