Many Disciplines - one Research Focus

SYLFF-Mikrokolleg on "Forced Migration"

The RUB Research School cooperates with the Tokio Foundation to present you a Mikrokolleg within the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (SYLFF) on the topic of forced migration.

Starting in 2017, the fellows are 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 such as economics, law, political science or sociology focus on interdisciplinary cooperation.

The fellows of the SYLFF-Mikrokolleg 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).

All fellows are members of RUB Research School which provides an international research and social environment to support the fellows' academic and non-academic future careers. The fellows are eligible to apply for additional funding of RUB Research School and the Tokio Foundation, such as for field research and conference organisation.
