With the summer school, we strive to support the international exchange between early-career researchers and the participating experts in our four research areas:

  • Economic, social and political challenges facing refugee children, youth and families
  • Language, literacy and learning
  • Social integration, human rights, social stigma, culture, and security/violence
  • Mental health and well-being

To facilitate the cooperation and the exchange we are planning various formats:

  • Leading international researchers will give keynotes in all of our four main areas
  • Emerging researchers will have the opportunity to present their own research projects in small working groups, discuss them with fellow participants and receive comments from experts in their field
  • specific issues and questions can be addressed in one-to-one consultations
  • as a special topic there we will conduct a workshop on strategies of knowledge mobilization in refugee research
