Forced Migration Studies Blog – contributions to displacement, asylum and forced migration

The Forced Migration Studies Blog is part of the German Network for Forced Migration Studies, a multidisciplinary network of scholars conducting research on displacement, forced migration, and refuge.

The goal of the Forced Migration Studies Blog is to provide a platform for information and exchange. Similar to multi- and interdisciplinary research on forced migration and refugees, blog posts deal with diverse topics from different disciplinary perspectives. They examine current developments, historical processes, and political debates on refugee protection and reflect upon living conditions of refugees, legal contexts as well as methodological and ethical issues. Contributions are primarily written by members of the Network for Forced Migration Studies and occasionally by experts from academia, practice, media and politics.

The Forced Migration Studies Blog was founded in January 2015 by Ulrike Krause, who managed the blog and the editorial board and was joined in September 2018 by Marcus Engler. Since its inception, more than 300 posts have been published by about 200 authors, covering many different topics and regions. In September of 2023, Katharina Heilmann, Daniele Saracino and Simon Weiser took over the management of the blog and the editorial team.

Editorial board

As of March of 2024, the editorial board is led by Daniele Saracino (University of Essex) and Simon Weiser (LMU Munich).
