New "Report Globale Flucht" published at S. Fischer Verlag

A comprehensive look at flight, conflict and international protection

Forced migration is a global challenge. The 20th century was already considered the "century of refugees". At the beginning of the 21st century, the number of people seeking protection has by no means decreased. Military conflicts and armed conflicts contribute to this as much as the disintegration of states and authoritarian political systems that do not tolerate oppositional actions and non-conformity in their own countries. Climate and environmental catastrophes or the effects of global inequality are also included in political, media, public and scientific debates as the background to refugee movements. The annual Report Globale Flucht offers well-founded knowledge on global refugee movements and their consequences (in German). The focus in 2023 is on flight as a result of the Ukraine war.

This is the start of a new series on one of the most pressing issues of our time. The report is the first regularly published German-language publication on the topic of flight. It is published annually by the joint project "Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer" (FFVT).

The Report Globale Flucht is now available.
