SYLFF-Mikrokolleg „Forced Migration“ - 2 more grants available

The RUB Research School in cooperation with the Tokio Foundation offers two grants for doctoral researchers within the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (SYLFF).

The fellows will be funded for three years with 1200 Euros monthly. They will be part of a small, highly interdisciplinary research group and work on individual doctoral projects within different research perspectives under the overarching topic of forced migration. The Mikrokolleg is located at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and professors from different disciplines defined research perspectives doctoral candidates can apply for.

The SYLFF Mikrokolleg invites the application of excellent young researchers with a strong interest in research on international forced migration, with a background in economics, law, political science or sociology and with a clear commitment towards cross-disciplinary cooperation.

Research Topic of the SYLFF-Mikrokolleg: Forced Migration

The fellows of the SYLFF-Mikrokolleg will work on a variety of aspects related to international forced migration which is understood as a cross-border “migratory movement in which an element of coercion exists, including threats to life and livelihood, whether arising from natural or man-made causes” (International Organisation for Migration). The fellows will

  • analyse the root causes of international forced migration in the home countries, including poverty, loss of land, and the persecution due to ethnicity, traditions and religious beliefs,
  • focus on the rights of forced migrants and refugees in different legal orders and on the duties of the involved actors, including the host state, international of regional organisations,
  • and / or will analyse the geographies of movement by comparing the characteristics of different important migration routes.

The SYLFF-Mikrokolleg invites the application of excellent young researchers with a strong interest in research on international forced migration, with a background in economics, law, political science, sociology or any other related field and with a clear commitment towards cross-disciplinary cooperation.
