Jack Bahn is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Carleton College and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. While at Carleton he worked extensively with Dr. Tun Myint on a variety of projects in Myanmar, including research into land use and property regimes. He received a research fellowship to study international economic migration and its effects on informal insurance mechanisms in small communities in the Sagaing region of Myanmar. Jack later did faith-based community organizing in Minnesota, where he worked closely with undocumented communities on a variety of issues related to economic and racial justice. He later returned to Myanmar to serve as the English editor for the Mon News Agency, a non-profit community news organization. Most recently, he served as the Operations Associate for the New York-based Jain Family Institute, where he supported administration and research projects in the social sciences. Jack continues to explore the impact of migration not just on migrants and the communities that receive them, but also migrant-sending communities.
