(Forced) Migration

Violent conflicts and their consequences often lead to global refugee and migration movements. Research on this topic at the Center focuses on interdisciplinary questions that explore the nexus between conflict and refugees, the gender-specific impact on refugee situations, resilience strategies practiced by refugees, integration processes and the evolution of prejudice and discrimination in the receiving societies, as well as among refugees and migrants. Furthermore sociocultural strategies of local populations are studied with regard to displacement and forced migration.
