Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer (FFVT)
Research on forced migration has received increased attention in recent years. However, Forced Migration and Refugee Studies have not yet been institutionally embedded in the German research landscape. Towards this end, CHREN, together with the Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC), the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies at the University of Osnabrück (IMIS) and the German Development Institute (DIE) has started the Project “Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer—FFVT”. The project has a duration of five years (2020-2024) and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Funded by: BMBF – German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
The FFVT project aims to initiate joint collaborative research, make German Forced Migration and Refugee Studies more visible in the international scientific landscape, establish academic courses and a close exchange between FFVT and science, politics and practice.
FFVT builds on the collaborative research project “Forced Displacement: Research and Transfer (FFT) that was carried out by IMIS and BICC from 2016 to 2019, also funded by the BMBF.
General information on the FFVT-project and the research outcomes of the FFT-project, including the interactive research map, are currently available on the FFT-website:
