He focuses primarily on issues related to international migration and development, homeland-diaspora relations and forced migration studies. He further concentrates on sustainable development, transnational studies, gender, human rights, citizenship theory, as well as on questions of inclusion and exclusion in host countries.

Daniel has published widely on the effects of migration on social, economic and political development, ethnic identity and the role and genesis of public policies. His book Migration, Citizenship, and Development. Diasporic Membership Policies and Overseas Indians in the United States (2013, Oxford University Press) examines how country-of-origin citizenship affects migrants activities and attitudes, such as naturalization, remittances, investment, philanthropy, return migration, political lobbying, and transnational belonging.

His recent research focuses on ‘migration governance’ and the link between migration and displacement and public policies, including the integration of human mobility into national and local development strategies and the links between migration and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, Daniel regularly advises governments and various United Nations agencies on issues of migration, diaspora engagement, displacement, and development. His advisory activities include global and local projects with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Bank, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, International Labour Organization (ILO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and UNICEF.

The regional focus of his academic research is South Asia, the U.S. and Europe. However, he has conducted analyses and led projects in South America, North and West Africa, as well as in South-East Asia.

Daniel holds a Ph.D. in political science and political economy from the University of Münster and a law degree from Humboldt University in Berlin.
