Transnational Perspectives on Migration and Integration (MZES Part TRANSMIT)

Research question/goal: 

The project “Transnational Perspectives on Migration and Integration” (TRANSMIT), within the framework of the DeZIM-FG, attempts to build a long-term oriented and integrated data infrastructure on migration that collects and systematically links quantitative and qualitative data in origin-, transit-, and destination countries. Existing data such as the IAB-BAMF-SOEP survey of refugees in Germany will also be used to inform and test hypotheses, and to ensure the comparability of relevant indicators. The data is collected both among (potential) migrants and host communities in countries of origin and transit as well as in Germany and enables comprehensive cross-sectional and panel analyses regarding migration and integration processes. Empirical analyses will be possible at the level of individuals, families, households, regions, and different stakeholder groups. At the same time, the systematic transnational link of data will enable finding commonalities and differences across migrant groups within Germany and beyond its national borders.

Current stage: 

Analyses of quantitative Data from the pilot project “ExiTT”. Planning and conducting further quantitative (longitudinal) surveys in Lebanon, Turkey and Germany on research questions connected to transnational migration and integration.
