seekingrefugeSeeking Refuge in a Changing World is a collaborative project that investigates a world of people in flux. In a series of multidisciplinary explorations, we investigate the global developments forcing people to seek refuge, the motivations and experiences of the refugees themselves, the impact of these migrations on sending and receiving communities, and the political, social, environmental and cultural responses to the mass migrations around the globe.  This is a joint effort of the Institute for Global Studies, Center for Austrian Studies, Center for German and European Studies, Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Human Rights Program, and Immigration History Research Center.
