Launched by the IWM in collaboration with the Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group (CRG) in June 2020, the Europe-Asia Research Platform on Forced Migration places a particular focus on South Asia and its European-Asian dimension. This collaboration advances cooperation between European and South Asian institutions and academics, while working toward innovative knowledge production on forced migration and border regimes.
Series of activities and workshops aim to enhance research capacities and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and policy expertise in forced migration studies in and between Europe and South Asia. Bringing together scholars, policy makers and practitioners from different disciplines and regions, the platform aspires to decentering Europe-focused scholarship, debates, and policies on forced migration.
The Europe-Asia Research Platform on Forced Migration benefits from ongoing projects on Europe’s Futures, and networks evolving from workshops such as “The Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants and the Architecture of Global Politics of Migration” organized in and by the IWM as well as the research platform The Challenge of Urban Futures at the University of Vienna and Cities and Human Mobility Collaborative at the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at the New School for Social Research.
“Arrival” Infrastructures: Ukrainian Displaced People in Vienna
