Interdisciplinary Approaches to Migration Research 2017/2018
Migration has become a prominent topic in the public sphere, dominating political campaigns and debates, and in the center of heated discussions about (im) migrants, border control, integration and refugee policy. While in science many different concepts and meanings of migration coexist, in everyday life and in the media, the concept of migration is mainly used to refer to the physical movement by humans from one area to another. Human mobility is seen as one of the immediate strategies for escaping conflict and poverty.
