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

For more information on current projects and research questions, please see the project pages below.

We currently do not offer internships with the Migration Program but will start to do so again in the summer of 2022. If you are interested in interning with this program, please send your cover letter, CV, and supporting documentation (such as letters of recommendation, certificates, etc.) to migration-bewerbung@dgap.org.
