The German Network for Forced Migration Studies

The German Network for Forced Migration Studies (Netzwerk Fluchtforschung e.V.) is a multi-disciplinary network of academics in Germany whose research focuses on forced migration, refuge, and asylum, as well as of international academics concentrating on these subjects with regard to Germany. We collect and distribute relevant information about scholars, research projects, events and publications. Our objective is to enhance academic exchange and collaboration between scholars in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies in Germany and beyond with publication platforms and knowledge transfer formats as well as conferences. Moreover, the network aims to advance research on forced migration, further academic debate about forced migration, refuge and asylum and promote the public and practical relevance of Forced Migration and Refugee Studies.

The network was established by J. Olaf Kleist, Nora Markard and Jochen Oltmer in June 2013 in Berlin, following a conference on the 20th anniversary of the enactment of the German asylum law reform of 1993.

Since February 2015, the network has its own Forced Migration Studies Blog (FluchtforschungsBlog), which was established by Ulrike Krause. Since 2018, the blog is dited by Marcus Engler and Ulrike Krause.

Between 2015 and 2018, the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – DFG) supported the associated academic network on fundamental issues of forced migration studies entitled ‘Grundlagen der Flüchtlingsforschung’.

Since 2016, the network organizes a major refugee research conference every two years and since 2017 the German Journal of Forced Migration and Refugee Studies (Z’Flucht: Zeitschrift für Flucht- und Flüchtlingsforschung) is published by Nomos in collaboration with the network.

In October 2018, the network was renamed to “Netzwerk Fluchtforschung e.V.” (German Network for Forced Migration Studies) by its members (from “Netzwerk Flüchtlingsforschung”), and established as a non-profit association (eingetragener Verein).

The network’s homepage is primarily in German. If you require more information in English, please do not hesitate to contact one of the relevant coordinators listed below.
