Andrew Janco
Post Doc | Human Rights Institute

Andrew Janco is currently a University Postdoctoral Fellow in the Human Rights Institute at the University of Connecticut. His research focuses on the history of warfare, displacement, and human rights protections for refugees. Andrew’s dissertation, “Soviet ‘Displaced Persons’ in Europe, 1941-1951,” studies the westward migration of more than five million Soviet citizens during World War II, their experiences as postwar “displaced persons,” and eventual resettlement as refugees during the Cold War. Andrew recently published an article in Contemporary European History on the origins of the international right of asylum, and he is currently working on articles about the concept of unnecessary suffering and a critical history of the international arms-control regime.
