Research on forced migration and refugees is highly relevant in Germany. As its importance has grown, so has the demand for expertise from civil society, the media and within politics. Gathering this expertise means building strong networks of experts in Germany and across the globe.
This is what FFVT wants to achieve: Networking and knowledge transfer. We do not conduct our own research but support structures that promote research on forced migration and refugees. We coordinate a range of formats and activities to reach out to the international community and to bridge gaps between disciplines. We support equal partnerships with people who have been forcibly displaced and with researchers from the Global South.
The FFVT website is an important information and communication tool in English and German. The website includes an information hub on Ukraine and an interactive database of almost 700 research projects in Germany, among other things. A German-language report on the state of forced migration, which will be published annually from 2023 onwards, is a key output of the project.
