Migration Program

The Migration Program conducts research and develops actionable policy recommendations on migration, asylum, and refugee issues. It analyzes migration policies in Germany, Europe, and other relevant countries of origin, transit, and destination, and aims to promote balanced migration debates that are less toxic and more constructive.

Key topics:

  • Migration management
  • Returns and deportations
  • Reintegration 
  • Cooperation with countries of origin and transit
  • Border controls
  • EU migration policies
  • Migration dialogue between Europe and Africa
