One core element of the joint project Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer (FFVT) is its fellowship programme. The programme serves to strengthen the research and transfer activities of future fellows in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies. This also includes the initiation of sustainable, international cooperation on the set of topics around forced displacement. FFVT fellowships are granted to researchers from abroad or with a refugee background working in the field of forced migration and refugee studies to support guest stays at one of the collaborative partners of FFVT. We invite PhD students and junior researchers whose PhD topic is relevant to our field of research and who have been working on it for about a year as well as post-docs and experienced researchers who are well-established in their research field to apply for the FFVT-fellowship programme. Fellowships are provided for stays of 2–6 months, depending on the terms of funding of the individual institutes. IDOS provides fellowships for stays of 2-4 months.
The current call for applications and further information about the fellowship programme can be found here.
The FFVT cooperation project is aiming to strengthen interdisciplinary research on refugees and forced migration in Germany and internationally. Partners in FFVT are the Bonn International Centre for Conflict Studies (BICC), the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen Nuremberg (CHREN, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS, Osnabrück University) and the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS). The main task in the joint project is to connect forced migration and refugee research conducted in Germany with development research. IDOS takes over important tasks in the field of internationalisation, by initiating cooperation with international researchers through workshops, summer schools and conferences with the goal of establishing sustainable partnerships and dialogues with strategically relevant institutions as well as political decision-makers and other practitioners.
