Report I spent six months at the Danish Refugee Council Zugdidi Field Office to carry out empirical research for my doctoral dissertation. I conducted 30 expert interviews with local, national and international stakeholders and attended several meetings that were organized by international organizations. My dissertation relies heavily on the information and data that I obtained during this stay. Overall, this RS Plus-funded research stay allowed me to further improve my research skills as a social scientist, gather important data and establish relevant contacts with practitioners from my field of research.
