Interdisciplinary Approaches to Migration Research 2017/2018

The Pufendorf IAS initiative on migration explored new conceptual, theoretical approaches as well as methodological innovations to address processes linked to migration. During 2017/2018 The Pufendorf IAS invited researchers from all faculties and disciplines into dialogue on crosscutting issues on migration such as ecology, politics, archeology and medicine with the ambition is to create a network of researchers with an interest in exploring this area further.
During the initaitive a range of seminars and discussions initiated by the network took place in academia as well as in society and in the media.



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.
