Forced Displacement as an area of special interest at the ABI

In light of the current public interest on refugees and migration, the ABI has also renewed their focus on forced displacement, considering the causes and consequences of flight. Our research highlights the agency and perspectives of displaced persons as well as the socio-political context in countries of origin and transit.

Due to the relevance and overlap to peace and conflict studies, the work takes place in the societies in conflict research cluster.

Currently Judith Altrogge, Erik Plänitz, Cita Wetterich and Franzisca Zanker are working on displacement-related topics.

Recently, we have discussed EU migration politics in Africa in a blog and policy brief.
