Refugees

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country and is unwilling or unable to return because of persecution, war or violence.  A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group (UNHCR, 2019). Research in this category includes studies on forced migration, displacement, the international refugee regime, refugee camps, refugee and human rights, international legislation, resettlement and integration.

Forced migration in Belarus

Authors Liudmila SHAKHOTSKA, Anastacia BOBROVA
Description
There is limited information on the number of forced migrants from Belarus. Key information can be found in the statistical publications of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Belarusian office of this organization gives the following explanation: “countries are guided by the principle of confidentiality of information submitted by an applicant. Public bodies of the asylum country have no right to transfer or provide any personal information about an application to his/her state of citizenship” (Delovaya Gazeta, 2013). According to UNHCR, the total number of persons from Belarus applying for refugee status, asylum or complementary protection was 6839 in 2011 and 6194 in 2012 (UNHCR, 2012; UNHCR, 2013). European countries (the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland) and the USA were their countries of preference. Some estimates are available at the websites of Eurostat and US National Security Agency. According to the data for 1998-2007, 16255 citizens of Belarus sought asylum in EU member states (Eurostat Statistics). The main recipient countries were Germany, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, the Czech Republic and Austria. The US National Security Agency also posts data on Belarusian refugees who arrived in the US territory. According to its estimates, there were 2844 of them 2003-2012 (Department of Homeland Security: 2012)

Forced Migration of Syrians to Jordan: An exploratory study

Authors Mohamed Y. OLWAN, Ahmad SHIYAB
Description
The study attempts to identify the economic, social and legal conditions of Syrian refugees residing in Jordan, subsequent to the events of March 2011 in Syria. The study sample consists of 105 interviews, which were conducted with the household heads of Syrian families residing in four governorates; Irbid, Mafraq, Balqa and Amman. The respondents were interviewed and they were asked to answer the 55 question survey included in the study questionnaire. The results of this exploratory study involved significant indicators regarding the challenges and difficulties faced by the Jordanian government as a result of hosting Syrian refugees on its territory. There is an urgent need to support the vital sectors necessary for refugees like health and education and the provision of adequate housing in addition to cash assistance to refugees. Thus, the UNHCR and the international community as a whole have to do their duty towards Syrian refugees in countries where they have taken refuge (Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan).

EACH-FOR: Environmental change and forced migration scenarios

Description
Forced migration is a movement in which an element of coercion exists, including threats to life and livelihood, whether arising from natural or man-made causes (e.g. movements of refugees and internally displaced persons). The changes of natural and man-made environment will probably be the most significant factors among the causes of forced migration. It is essential to get accurate information about the current and future triggers of forced migration in each country of origin and within Europe itself. The two year long project's general objectives are to support European policies, research and the civil society with'forced migration' scenarios, and cooperate with other migration and environment degradation related projects and institutions. The objectives will be achieved by five interlinked research sequences: 1) forecasting the natural and anthropogenic causes of forced migration; 2) analyzing direct (e.g. desertification) and indirect (e.g. conflicts) environmental effects on livelihoods; 3) predicting potential forced migration flows, with emphasis on environmental refugees; 4) contributing to the preparation of statistical indicators to measure environmental refugee flows; 5) dissemination. The study of the causes is a multidisciplinary and multisectoral process. The list of methodological tools contains all traditional elements of research from primary data collection via statistical analysis and environmental evaluation to modelling. The studied cases are selected from the following regions: Europe and Russia, NIS and Central Asia, Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Ghana, Middle East and Northern Africa, Latin America. The project will produce detailed sub-region or country level forced migration scenarios, including environmental refugees; presentation of causes leading to forced migration, with focus on environmental concerns; and an online running "environment degradation caused forced migration" model for demonstration and policy purposes.

Refugees and displaced persons in Georgia

Authors Mirian TUKHASHVILI
Description
Forced migration is the most pressing problem in terms of the territorial mobility of the Georgian population. Forced migration has varied over time. Mass-scale transfer of the local population by conquerors and forced migration to other countries (Iran, Turkey and Russia) took place in the past. But there was also further organized and disorganized migrations from these countries and individuals sought asylum in Georgia. Of course, we will examine only those flows that currently present a significant problem.

Gender, Flucht, Aufnahmepolitiken: Prozesse vergeschlechtlichter In- und Exklusionen in Niedersachsen

Principal investigator Helen Schwenken (Principal Investigator), Sabine Hess (Principal Investigator), Elke Grittmann (Principal Investigator), Silke Wenk (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Gibt es in Deutschland einen Unterschied bei der Aufnahme und Integration geflüchteter Männer und Frauen? Vor welchen Herausforderungen stehen geflüchtete Frauen und LGBTI? Medienberichte über sexuelle Gewalt in Unterkünften für Geflüchtete haben auf die unsichere Situation und Schutzbedürftigkeit insbesondere weiblicher Geflüchteter aufmerksam gemacht. Aber nicht nur bei der Aufnahme, auch bei Maßnahmen und Angeboten zur Integration von Geflüchteten stehen Frauen häufig vor besonderen Herausforderungen. Politik, Unterstützungsorganisationen und Einrichtungen diskutieren seit geraumer Zeit die Folgen dieser Differenzen und einige Kommunen haben begonnen, spezifische Angebote für geflüchtete Frauen zu entwickeln. Allerdings liegen bislang kaum Erkenntnisse über Formen und Ausmaß dieser Bedingungen und Folgen für die geflüchteten Frauen vor. Das Verbundprojekt untersucht die konkreten Bedingungen, Prozesse und öffentlichen Diskurse der Aufnahme und Integration von Geflüchteten in Niedersachsen. In vier thematischen Teilprojekten wird empirisch untersucht, wie Differenzen und Ungleichheiten in spezifischen Angeboten und Politiken zu Flucht und Migration hergestellt und welche Konflikte und Widersprüche damit wirksam werden.

Asylum seekers, refugees and internally displaced persons in the Republic of Belarus : challenges to social cohesion

Authors Larissa TITARENKO
Description
There is a global rise in forced migration resulting from military and ethnic conflicts and natural disasters. Being one of the stable countries in the post-Soviet region the Republic of Belarus attracts attention of forced migrants seeking asylum and/or protection. Thus, the problem of forced migration affects Belarus, as it acts as a recipient country for foreign nationals and stateless persons seeking refuge and/or asylum.

Regional responses to forced migration : the case of Libya

Authors Sonja NITA
Description
The 2011 Libyan civil war, part of the wider Arab Spring, triggered considerable population displacements. These displacements included both Libyans and third-country nationals fleeing the country by land, air and sea. Data available for spring/summer 2011 shows that an estimated 1,128,985 people left Libya to seek shelter in Tunisia, Egypt, Niger, Algeria, Chad and Sudan as well as in Malta and Italy. Research has, thus far, mainly focused on the response of the international community (UNHCR and IOM, above all), the European Union and individual countries in dealing with large numbers of displaced persons (Kelly and Wadud 2012, Fargues and Fandrich 2012, Tucci 2012, Forced Migration Review 2012). Less attention has been given to those regional entities of which Libya has been a member. These include: the African Union (AU), the League of Arab States (LAS), the Community of Sahel Saharan States (CEN-SAD), the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the Organization for the Islamic Conference (OIC). The aim of this paper is, therefore, to shed light on the (actual and potential) role of these regional organizations in alleviating those fleeing from Libya.

Geflüchtete Frauen und Familien

Principal investigator Herbert Brücker (Principal Investigator)
Description
"In dem Forschungsvorhaben wird die Fluchtmigration von Familien und Frauen untersucht. Das umfasst Fragen wie das Treffen von Migrationsentscheidungen im Familienkontext, die Selektivität der Fluchtmigration unter Genderaspekten, die besonderen Risiken der Flucht für Frauen und den Familiennachzug. All diese Faktoren sind nicht nur für das Verständnis der gender— und familienspezifischen Aspekte von Fluchtprozessen relevant, sondern auch für die spätere soziale Teilhabe und strukturelle Integration von geflüchteten Frauen und Familien. Darüber hinaus wird die spätere Integration und Teilhabe von Frauen und Familien in Deutschland untersucht. Dazu gehören Fragen wie Genderdifferenzen in der Teilhabe an Sprachkursen und anderen Integrationsmaßmahmen, an Bildung und Ausbildung, in der Integration in den Arbeitsmarkt und ihre Ursachen sowie die Teilhabe von geflüchteten Kindern und Jugendlichen am Bildungssystem und ihre Betreuung. Das Projekt wird in Kooperation mit dem IAB durchgeführt."

Affektive und kulturelle Dimensionen von Integration infolge von Flucht und Zuwanderung

Principal investigator Christian von Scheve (Principal Investigator), Jürgen Schupp (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Vorhaben geht von der Annahme aus, dass sich Diversität und kultureller Wandel durch Zuwanderung nicht allein anhand von Wissen und Kompetenzen bemessen lassen, sondern substanziell mit Werten, Einstellungen und Emotionen auf Seiten der Zugewanderten und der einheimischen Bevölkerung verbunden sind. Ausgehend von Ansätzen sozialwissenschaftlicher und psychiatrischer Integrations- und Akkulturationsforschung verfolgt das Vorhaben die These, dass diese kognitiv-evaluativen und affektiven Dimensionen des Miteinanders essenziell für das gesellschaftliche Zusammenleben und Integrationsprozesse sind. Dies gilt besonders für Zuwanderung im Kontext von Flucht und Vertreibung, da Geflüchtete oft erheblichen Stressoren ausgesetzt sind.

Zwangsmigration und Holocaust. Jüdische Flüchtlinge in Westeuropa 1938-1944

Principal investigator Ahlrich Meyer (Principal Investigator ), Insa Meinen (Principal Investigator )
Description
Ziel des Vorhabens ist eine länderübergreifende Untersuchung des Fluchtverhaltens von Ju-den in Reaktion auf die sogenannte „Endlösung der Judenfrage“. Im Mittelpunkt stehen individuelle Überlebensstrategien angesichts der antijüdischen Verfolgungsmaßnahmen des NS-Regimes, der restriktiven Flüchtlingspolitik der westeuropäischen Aufnahmeländer und der Deportationen in die Vernichtungslager. Dazu sollen drei historische Felder exemplarisch erforscht werden:• das Ausmaß der Fluchten von Juden aus Deutschland und Österreich nach Westeuropa (mit Schwerpunkt Belgien) im Zeitraum nach dem „Anschluß“ Österreichs und dem Novemberpogrom 1938;• die Fluchtbewegungen innerhalb der drei von Deutschland besetzten westeuropäischen Länder (aus den Niederlanden und Belgien nach Frankreich) seit Beginn des Auswan-derungsverbots für Juden 1941 und während der Zeit der Massendeportationen nach Auschwitz 1942 bis 1944;• der Anteil der jüdischen Flüchtlinge an der Gesamtzahl der Deportationsopfer aus Westeuropa (Belgien und Frankreich).

Frauen, Flucht – und Frieden? Friedensfördernde Praktiken von Frauen in Flüchtlingslagern

Principal investigator Ulrike Krause (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Welche Bedeutungen messen Menschen und insbesondere Frauen, die vor gewaltsamen Konflikten geflohen sind, Frieden zu? Diese Frage ist im Forschungsprojekt zentral. Weltweit tragen gewaltsame Konflikte dazu bei, dass viele Menschen ihre Herkunftsregionen verlassen, um in anderen Gebieten oder Ländern Schutz zu suchen. Wissenschaftliche Studien zum Nexus von Konflikt und Flucht eruieren bisher vorrangig Konfliktfolgen. Sie belegen, dass konfliktbedingte Gewalt in Aufnahmesituationen von Geflüchteten, insbesondere in Flüchtlingslagern, anhalten und Frauen vor spezifische Risiken stellen kann. In dieser auf Gefahren konzentrierten Forschung bleibt allerdings die Bedeutung von Frieden vernachlässigt. Zumeist wird Frieden reduziert als Bedingung für die Rückkehr der Menschen an ihre Herkunftsorte, jedoch nicht als prägenden Teil des Alltags oder als Handlungsmotiv Geflüchteter und konkret geflüchteter Frauen betrachtet. An dieser Stelle knüpft das Forschungsvorhaben Frauen, Flucht – und Frieden? Friedensfördernde Praktiken von Frauen in Flüchtlingslagern an. Das Vorhaben stellt Frieden in das Zentrum der Analysen und verbindet friedens- und fluchtwissenschaftliche Diskurse. Der Konflikt-Flucht-Nexus wird um eine interdependente Verbindung mit Frieden ergänzt und Flüchtlingslager als friedensrelevante Postkonfliktsituationen verstanden. Anhand empirischer Forschung mit Fallstudie im kenianischen Flüchtlingslager Kakuma sind die Ziele zu untersuchen, wie geflüchtete Frauen Frieden verstehen, wie sie sich im Lager und bezogen auf Herkunftsregionen für friedvolle Verhältnisse einsetzen möchten sowie welche Möglichkeiten und Grenzen sie in ihren friedensfördernden Praktiken erfahren. Zur Untersuchung bedient sich das Vorhaben eines Agency-Fokus im Sinne des local turn der kritischen Friedensforschung. Ein wichtiger Bestandteil dieser Ausrichtung ist, dass das Vorhaben von einer vorgefertigten, feststehenden und ggf. eurozentrischen Friedensdefinition absieht. Einhergehend mit dem local turn wird stattdessen das ‚lokale‘ Wissen und folglich die Auffassungen geflüchteter Frauen von Frieden als wesentlich betrachtet und erhoben. Auf Grundlage dessen werden die Praktiken der Frauen für Frieden in ihrem Verständnis wie auch die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen für ihr Friedenshandeln erforscht. Zur Analyse dieser Handlungen zieht das Vorhaben die Agency-Theorie von Ruth Lister (2004) heran. Mit der Wendung der Perspektive hin zu Frieden möchte das Forschungsvorhaben wissenschaftliche Debatten zur Rolle von Frieden für Geflüchtete anregen und einen Beitrag zur Schließung von Forschungslücken leisten. Zudem verfolgt das Projekt friedenspolitische Anliegen und möchte unter anderem mit humanitären Akteur*innen die Ergebnisse teilen, um Aufschluss über geflüchtete Frauen als handelnde Akteurinnen und ihre friedensbezogenen Praktiken zu geben."

Protection in Crisis: Forced Migration and Protection in a Global Era

Description
More than 51 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced today as refugees, asylum seekers, or internally displaced persons. According to the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, to be recognized legally as a refugee, an individual must be fleeing persecution on the basis of religion, race, political opinion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group, and must be outside the country of nationality. However, the contemporary drivers of displacement are complex and multilayered, making protection based on a strict definition of persecution increasingly problematic and challenging to implement. Many forced migrants now fall outside the recognized refugee and asylum apparatus. Much displacement today is driven by a combination of intrastate conflict, poor governance and political instability, environmental change, and resource scarcity. These conditions, while falling outside traditionally defined persecution, leave individuals highly vulnerable to danger and uncertain of the future, compelling them to leave their homes in search of greater security. In addition, the blurring of lines between voluntary and forced migration, as seen in mixed migration flows, together with the expansion of irregular migration, further complicates today's global displacement picture. This report details the increasing mismatch between the legal and normative frameworks that define the existing protection regime and the contemporary patterns of forced displacement. It analyzes contemporary drivers and emerging trends of population displacement, noting that the majority of forcibly displaced people – some 33.3 million – remain within their own countries, and that more than 50 percent of the displaced live in urban areas. The author then outlines and assesses key areas where the international protection system is under the most pressure, and finally examines the key implications of these trends for policymakers and the international community, outlining some possible policy directions for reform.

Forced Migration and Transnational Family Arrangements – Eritrean and Syrian Refugees in Germany

Principal investigator Leonore Sauer (Principal Investigator ), Andreas Ette (Principal Investigator ), Elisabeth K. Kraus (Principal Investigator ), Nikola Sander (Principal Investigator )
Description
"Transnationale Familien, in denen Familienmitglieder im Herkunftsland verbleiben, während ein oder mehrere Familienmitglieder ins Ausland migrieren, sind ein Phänomen, das seit Ende der 1990er Jahre verstärkt in den Fokus der Wissenschaft gerückt ist. Jedoch beschäftigen sich bis jetzt nur wenige Studien umfassend mit transnationalen Familienkonstellationen im Kontext von Fluchtmigration. Sowohl die ursprüngliche Migrationsentscheidung als auch die Situation im Zielland hängen dabei nicht alleine von den migrierenden Individuen, sondern auch von ihrem familiären Kontext ab. Ziel des Projektes ist es daher, zu untersuchen, welcher Zusammenhang zwischen unterschiedlichen Familienkonstellationen und den durch die Flucht bedingten Veränderungen und dem Leben der geflüchteten Personen in Deutschland besteht. Das in Kooperation mit dem Forschungszentrum des Bundesamts für Migration und Flüchtlinge durchgeführte Projekt analysiert dabei, welche Formen, Strukturen und regionale Verortung transnationale Familien aufweisen. Darüber hinaus wird nicht nur die Entstehung von transnationalen Familien beleuchtet, sondern auch deren Veränderungen, die durch den Verbleib der Migrantinnen und Migranten im Zielland, Weiterwanderung oder deren Rückkehr ins Herkunftsland oder Familienzusammenführung ausgelöst sind. Durch die mit der Migration verbundene räumliche Trennung einzelner Familienmitglieder verändern sich die Beziehungen innerhalb einer Familie: Es soll daher außerdem untersucht werden, wie die Beziehungen zu den zurückgebliebenen Familienmitgliedern im Herkunftsland gepflegt werden sowie welche familiären Austauschprozesse existieren. Des Weiteren sollen im Rahmen dieser Studie auch die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Familienkonstellationen und sozialen Netzwerken beziehungsweise der sozialen Einbindung in Deutschland herausgearbeitet werden."
