ZEF's research on migration

January 13, 2016.  

ZEF has been conducting research on different aspects of migration and mobility over the past 15 years.

Moreover, our efforts and activities in the realm of institutional and academic capacity development in developing countries have addressed root causes of forced migration: Around 80 percent of our PhD students return to their home countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia after finishing their degree to re-invest their skills in developing institutions and shaping policies in their societies.
