Comparative perspectives on Refugee politics (Beirut/Berlin)

Funded by the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the German federal Ministry of Education (BMBF)

Tamirace Fakhoury conducts this research project together with Prof. Carola Richter (Freie University of Berlin)

This project brings together students and researchers from Beirut and Berlin to look in cross-comparative perspective at refugee politics in Lebanon and Germany. In the wake of two field research visits organized in Beirut (March 2018) and Berlin (June 2018), students and researchers will generate critical insights on how Lebanon’s and Germany’s policy and societal fields have interacted with forced displacement from Syria.
