What is your particular interest in the project?

"Forced migration is one of the most actual and challenging issues of our society. When I was confronted with forced migrants who suffered from organized violence for the first time in a biographical interview, I was impressed by the conducted insight of their lifeworld and perceptions and by the brave with which they managed to face several challenges and precarious conditions on their journey. This project aims to improve our understanding of forced Migration in these context and therefore helps to develop a scientific approach and improve humanitarian perspectives for forced migrants worldwide."
