Biography

Hyab Yohannes is a research associate with the UNESCO RILA team at the University of Glasgow. His work involves conducting research and synthesising findings to provide insights into theoretical, methodological, and policy-related questions. Recently, Hyab co-edited a Special Issue on Intercultural Knowledge Production for the Journal of Language and Intercultural Communication. He is also currently co-editing a book entitled “Cultures of Sustainable Peace” for Multilingual Matters. Additionally, he has signed a book contract with Routledge for his upcoming publication entitled “The Refugee Abyss”. Hyab’s research interests include (b)ordering (physical, onto-epistemic, spatio-temporal, juridico-political, etc.), (de)coloniality, and political theories. Hyab's versatility to translate knowledge from different disciplines and epistemic traditions allows him to conduct research with a specialisation in migration, political theory, and (de)coloniality.
