Tobias Kusian

Tobias is finishing his studies in architecture in Germany, where he is doing research on urbanization of refugee camps. Those are planned as temporary shelters, but often become almost permanent. Tobias has ideas of considering this fact into the initial planning of refugee camps and therefore improve living conditions for refugees. After working for Amnesty International alongside his studies - where he first made contact with the Darfur conflict - he was looking for a possibility to combine his studies with the Involvement for areas of conflict in a more active way.
