Bürgerschaftliches Engagement für Flüchtlinge und von Flüchtlingen und Soziale Arbeit in NRW"

Principal investigator Sonja Kubisch (Principal Investigator), Markus Ottersbach (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Das bürgerschaftliche Engagement für geflüchtete Menschen hat zeitweise eine große mediale Aufmerksamkeit erfahren. Wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse über die verschiedenen Formen dieses Engagements liegen bisher jedoch nur in Ansätzen vor. Um die Nachhaltigkeit des Engagements zu sichern, ist es darum wichtig, mehr Wissen über das Engagement mit geflüchteten Menschen, insbesondere aber auch über das Engagement der geflüchteten Menschen selbst zu generieren. Gleichzeitig gilt es, die professionelle Soziale Arbeit in den Blick zu nehmen, denn Sozialarbeiter_innen/ Sozialpädagog_innen sind entscheidende Schlüsselpersonen, wenn es um die Koordination, Begleitung und Weiterbildung von freiwillig Engagierten geht. Im Feld der Flüchtlingssozialarbeit sind sie derzeit allerdings selbst teilweise unter schwierigen Bedingungen tätig und besonders gefordert, ihre eigene Position zu klären. Das geplante Forschungsprojekt fokussiert vor diesem Hintergrund die Schnittstellen zwischen dem bürgerschaftlichen Engagement und der professionellen Sozialen Arbeit im Handlungsfeld der Flüchtlingsarbeit."

Tracing Narratives of Flight and Migration

Principal investigator Heike Drotbohm (Principal Investigator), Nausikaa Schirilla (Principal Investigator), Anna Lipphardt (Principal Investigator), Inga Schwarz (Principal Investigator), Anne-Maria Müller (Principal Investigator), Berit Lange (Principal Investigator), Tilo Wiertz (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Trajectory Analysis as a new Approach in Research and Practice Trajectories of people who flee to Europe and Germany are complex and contingent. People change aspirations, routes and destinations as they cross different national, institutional and social contexts. Whereas migration studies often focusses on spatially bound migration regimes, trajectory analysis has recently been proposed as a new approach that traces the routes and experiences of people on the move across regional and national boundaries. This project group aims to advance trajectory analysis by improving our methodological approach to and understanding of the interactions between individual trajectories and different social and institutional contexts. We will examine how narratives of flight and migration are co-produced and reshaped in encounters between migrants and different practice settings. Our purpose is to develop a sensitive and critical approach to such encounters, improve our understanding of implications for subjective identities and mental wellbeing, and inform practical work, particularly in the areas of health care and social work."

Turismens roll i multikulturella samhällen

Principal investigator Sayaka Osanami Törngren (Project Leader), Thomas Pederson (Participant), Caroline Adolfsson (Participant), Pieter Bevelander (Participant)
Description
Tourism and the tourism industry have been criticized for contributing to a uni-dimensional view of culture and people, which (re)produces stereotypic images, discredited histories and romantic fantasies. There is a risk that tourism reduces places to monocultures where the complexity that makes them interesting disappear. No modern society has only a culture, language or identity. Globalization, migration and other intercultural exchanges changes places. Inclusion and participation are increasingly highlighted in tourism and place branding literature. However, tourism and place branding have rarely been associated with concepts such as integration, migration and multiculturalism. TiM's objective is to explore the role of tourism in multicultural societies, in Sweden and beyond, as well as to act for the inclusion and representation of diversity in tourism development and place branding. TiMS’ originality lies in 1. A multidisciplinary and innovative approach to tourism studies, including design, social work, migration studies, marketing and interaction design, placing it in the forefront of technical and methodological development. 2. The ability to reach actual practical and societal change through collaboration between research and practice through action-oriented research. 3. Studies in Sweden and four non-European countries (Kenya, C hina, Japan and the US) broadens and deepens the understanding and conceptualisation of sustainable and inclusive forms of tourism and place branding.

Patterns of Drug Use among (ethnic and cultural) Minorities

Principal investigator Tom Delcorte (Coordinartor), Dirk Jacobs (Partner), Ilse Derluyn (Partner), Wouter Vanderplasschen (Partner)
Description
Even though attitudes and practices of ethnic minority groups in Belgium have been extensively studied in the last decade, little is known about the prevalence and nature of their substance use (alcohol and illicit drugs). It therefore remains an under-researched topic, especially in Europe (Bashford et al., 2004). One of the main reasons lies in conceptual and methodological issues that complicate research on ethnicity. These issues, combined with the multidimensional nature of drug use, fear of accusations of racism and discrimination, and a general lack of minority ethnic health and social care workers and researchers, have created an environment where the theme of ethnicity, drug use and related service provision has been neglected. A necessary first step towards a holistic approach for these specific populations is to establish accurate information on the extent of drug use and its possible determinants. This project re-unites a multidisciplinary network (sociology, criminology, special education and social work) that has previously performed the Belspo-funded study on ‘Treatment trajectories of drug users from ethnic minorities’ (ZEMIV-project 2006-2007; Derluyn et al., 2008) - aims to help fill this gap. The general objectives of this research are: • to contribute to a better understanding of the prevalence and nature of drug use among ethnic and cultural minorities (ECM) in Belgium; • to unveil the determining factors behind substance use (illicit drugs and alcohol); • to increase ECM capacity in raising awareness about drug issues within the participants’ own communities; • and to assess the needs of ECM and articulate them with the actors responsible for planning services.

Towards a critical moral anthropology

Description
Consubstantial to the founding project of social sciences, moral issues have been eclipsed for a long time in sociological and anthropological research. Without neglecting recent efforts of social scientists to readdress them, my intention is to take up this repressed ambition by laying the foundations of a critical moral anthropology. The crucial importance of morals in everyday life as well as in global crisis, in the evaluation of actions as well as in the justification of policies, in the relations with others as well as in the construction of social identities makes this ambition a reasonable necessity. Empirical validation will be done through a comparative ethnography of moral economies around two groups: immigrants in juridical precariousness; adolescents from underprivileged areas. Our study will concern their interactions with regulation structures police and justice, social work and mental health. It will enlighten the concepts of moral work and stakes, of moral categories and evaluation, of moral communities and boundaries. Fieldwork will be mainly conducted in the banlieues of Paris. For the immigrants, we will study how situations and claims are evaluated at the border to enter the territory (Waiting Zone for Foreigners of Roissy) or in case of appeal for refugees (National Court for Asylum); we will also analyze processes of sanction for their illegal situation (Retention Center of Coquelles) or for offences (Prisons of La Santé, Fresnes and Val d Oise). For the adolescents, we will focus on the ordinary setting of institutions in charge of these publics (Val d Oise), but also on two innovative responses based on mental health (Network of Yvelines Sud and House for Adolescents of Val d Oise East). Based mainly on anthropology and sociology, the project also involves political science, philosophy, psychology and psychiatry. The research team includes the PI, 5 post-docs, 5 PhD students and two part-time researchers, all from IRIS.

The impact of flight experiences on the psychological wellbeing of unaccompanied refugee minors

Description
Since early 2015, the media continuously confront us with images of refugee children drowning in the Mediterranean, surviving in appalling conditions in camps or walking across Europe. Within this group of fleeing children, a considerable number is travelling without parents, the unaccompanied refugee minors. While the media images testify to these flight experiences and their possible huge impact on unaccompanied minors’ wellbeing, there has been no systematic research to fully capture these experiences, nor their mental health impact. Equally, no evidence exists on whether the emotional impact of these flight experiences should be differentiated from the impact of the traumatic events these minors endured in their home country or from the daily stressors in the country of settlement. This project aims to fundamentally increase our knowledge of the impact of experiences during the flight in relation to past trauma and current stressors. To achieve this aim, it is essential to set up a longitudinal follow-up of a large group of unaccompanied refugee minors, whereby our study starts from different transit countries, crosses several European countries, and uses innovative methodological and mixed-methods approaches. I will hereby not only document the psychological impact these flight experiences may have, but also the way in which care and reception structures for unaccompanied minors in both transit and settlement countries can contribute to reducing this mental health impact. This proposal will fundamentally change the field of migration studies, by introducing a whole new area of study and novel methodological approaches to study these themes. Moreover, other fields, such as trauma studies, will be directly informed by the project, as also clinical, educational and social work interventions for victims of multiple trauma. Last, the findings on the impact of reception and care structures will be highly informative for policy makers and practitioners.

The Aesthetics of Applied Theatre

Description
The project aims to systematically explore an entire field of current forms of theatre, which despite its outstanding cultural and political significance has so far largely been ignored by theatre studies. Over the past two decades, notwithstanding intense competition from television and electronic media, theatre has been able to reassert and even reinforce its relevance in many different parts of the world and in widely diverse cultural fields (politics, business, social work, development aid, health care, and education). This renewed relevance originates not in traditional, experimental, or commercial theatre but rather among the many different types of applied theatre, which set in motion constructive social processes while upholding theatre’s aesthetic claim. Theatre with clear social, political, or economic aims is experiencing an unprecedented boom. The study will analyse this cross-cultural trend against the background of new theories of the aesthetics of performances and rehearsal processes. This theatre studies approach promises precise insights into the aesthetic forms of applied theatre, which constitute the (hitherto barely researched) foundation of its political effects. It will furthermore bring to light the ethical issues of applied theatre: intense aesthetic experiences – often linked with risks when it comes to performances – do not readily fit in with the claim to restore children, youngsters, patients, and other target groups to health, integrity, and self-confidence through theatrical practice. The project aims to show how aesthetic, political, and ethical aspects interact in the practice of applied theatre. Investigations will focus on carefully selected case studies in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, whose comparison will make it possible for the first time to capture the worldwide landscape of applied theatre in its full diversity, but also in its overarching structures and interrelations.
