"Social integration of refugees - taking into account cultural aspects"

Brief description of the project

The proposed mobility project entitled "Social Integration of Refugees - taking into account cultural aspects" within the framework of the DAAD program "University Dialogue with the Islamic World" aims to carry out practical projects - to be worked out - Palestine, Jordan and Germany. The practical projects address the question under which conditions refugees are integrated into different social subsystems, taking into account country, system specific and globalized cultural sources.

To implement the proposed mobility project, lecturers, students and actors from civil society, humanitarian aid and welfare Palestine, Jordan and Germany will jointly carry out, evaluate and present on-site practical projects. A mutual visit is planned to realize the proposed mobility project.

The proposed mobility project creates (1) a transnational and regional network Palestine, Jordan and Germany that produces sustainable best practice examples to make a social and scientific contribution in the debate on the integration of refugees. Students can (2) further develop their scientific and intercultural skills in an inspiring environment of cultural diversity through the implementation of the practical projects. Universities and actors in civil society, humanitarian aid and welfare services (3) gain the opportunity, through practical projects, to expand and improve their services.


As a result of this win-win situation, the project will create a network that will address the refugee question multi-perspectively and effectively beyond the project duration. The proposed mobility project will create a sustainable connection between the partner institutions (Al Balqa University -Jordania-, Al-Najah University - Palestine, University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg-Stendal, University of Applied Sciences Neubrandenburg) and a network of dedicated actors in the refugee work.
