The joint project Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer (FFVT) is starting its fellowship programme. FFVT fellowships are granted to (experienced and less experienced) researchers from abroad or with a refugee background working in the field of forced migration and refugee studies to support guest stays at one of the collaborative partners of FFVT. The current call for applications offers stays of two to six months between 1 October 2021 and 31 December 2022. The call for applications and further information on the fellowship programme can be found here.
The FFVT cooperation project is aiming to strengthen interdisciplinary research on refugees and forced migration in Germany and internationally. Partners in FFVT are the Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC), the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen Nuremberg (CHREN, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS, Osnabrück University) and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). The German Development Institute’s (DIE) main task in the joint project is to connect forced migration and refugee research conducted in Germany with development research. The DIE takes over important tasks in the field of internationalisation, by initiating cooperations with international researchers through workshops, summer schools and conferences with the goal of establishing sustainable partnerships and dialogues with strategically relevant institutions as well as political decision-makers and other practitioners.
