4th Conference of the German Network for Forced Migration Studies
Forced migration is a political and social challenge in ever new constellations – in Europe and worldwide. Refugees are confronted with manifold dangers and challenges, which they face with a wide variety of coping strategies. The category of “the refugee” challenges fundamental principles of states, law, political communities and society. Refugee and forced migration studies analyse and conceptualise all those aspects and have to tackle questions regarding the normative and ethical foundations of its research subject, as well as questions of knowledge transfer and critical interventions into the wider public.
