Working Group on Migration and Refugee Studies › view all


A New Fellow Initiative at BIGSSS

Many PhD-fellow at BIGSSS work on issues related to migration and refugee-studies. Research related to this topic is often cross-disciplinary, cutting the boundaries of political science, sociology and social psychology.

In spring 2016, our PhD fellows thus established a working group on Migration and Refugee Studies with the aim to bring together fellows from all fields, disciplines and cohorts. This diversity concerning methodology, discipline and country of origin enriches our discussions and allows us to get to know other perspectives on the similar topics.

The group is a forum for presenting ongoing research projects related to diverse issues of migration. The group also discusses state-of-the-art literature and most relevant classics. External researchers are invited for lectures or workshops on a regular basis.

Interested fellows and other doctoral researchers of University Bremen or Jacobs University are always welcome to join the group! Learn more about the Migration group and its recent activities.
