Prof. Dr. Stephanie Schütze
Freie Universität Berlin
Associate Professor for Cultural and Social Anthropology
"For many years I have studied the phenomenon of migration from the perspective of migrants that have reached their country of destination and organize their life in transnational spaces. In this project I am interested in studying the process of migration, mobility and transit in the Central American-Mexican-US American migration corridor. In recent years this region has especially been affected by violence. Yet, violence connected to migration – as a reason for migration as well as accompanying the migration process – is a global phenomenon. The comparison of two migration corridors – in Mexico and Turkey – seems particularly interesting to me and broadens my former regional focus."
