Yermi Brenner has gained significant experience in the field of migration.

Professionally, working as a writer and researcher (2018-2019), Yermi supported the establishment of the Mixed Migration Centre (a think tank of the Danish Refugee Council) by writing data-driven articles about migration trends. In this role, Yermi conducted interviews with migration experts and stakeholders, collected and consolidated data from various databases on migration and asylum, and wrote briefs about migration research. Two essays Yermi co-wrote were published in the 2018 Mixed Migration Annual Review.

He reported and wrote feature articles and investigative reports covering the arrival and integration of refugees in Europe for Al Jazeera EnglishMiddle East Eye and other international publications.
