Migration, Borders and Urban Space

The workshop brings together Turkish academics currently working in Germany on the topic of „Migration, Borders and Urban Space”. They represent different disciplines including political science, regional planning, urban sociology and communication; and so their project presentations will offer different perspectives on the issue of migration. The workshop consists of three scientific panels and one panel focusing on research and career prospects for threatened researchers from Turkey. The attending members of “Turkish Academics for Peace” will meet after the workshop. Guests are welcome. 

The programme includes the following lectures:

  • Participatory Attitudes of the Turkish Migrant Communities in Berlin’s Urban Policy, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tuba İnal Çekiç (Humboldt University)
