Research Coordination Within the DeZIM Network

Research question/goal: 

The coordination and networking of the DeZIM research community aims to encourage cooperation between the members of the DeZIM research community and the DeZIM institute. The networking and coordination staff in all research institutes of the DeZIM research community ensure an intensive and systematic exchange between the institutions involved (e.g. with regard to communication and organization of scientific conferences and workshops).

The German Center for Integration and Migration Research (DeZIM) was founded in July 2017 and is headed by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ). It aims to strengthen, connect and advance existing structures in migration and integration research. Furthermore, it addresses crucial questions of migration and integration research while attempting to close research gaps. DeZIM consists of two cooperating pillars: the DeZIM institute in Berlin, providing departmental research, and the DeZIM research community, comprising seven established research institutes for migration and integration research, among them the MZES.

Current stage: 

In 2023, the project team continued to focus on actively promoting collaboration between the institutes of the DeZIM Research Community, in particular by organising several cooperation projects (such as Research Network on Discrimination and Racism, FoDiRa) or by co-organising the ‘FoDiRa Workshop about Discrimination and Racism’ at the MZES. In May 2023, a DeZIM workshop on ‘Methods of Computational Social Science’ was held at the MZES. The MZES team was also significantly involved in the call for proposals, selection, and implementation of the DeZIM Workshop Series and the organisation of the ‘DeZIM-Promovierendentagung’, held at the WZB in October 2023.
