What is your particular interest in the project?

"In times of social and technological upheavals worldwide, it is important to carry out research, to capture the pulse of the times and to give deeper insights into the considered facts. Especially in highly developed states, such as Germany, it is important to analyze the underlying order or disorder in the terms 'refugee' or 'migration'. What does it mean if, according to the UN, at the end of 2018, 70.8 million people worldwide have to flee because of conflicts? What does it mean for the refugees; for the affected country losing valuable human resources; for the transit countries and for the countries of destination of this migration? I am not looking for answers in this research project. The motivation is to give voice to people affected by organized violence and forced migration and to tell their story."
