FFVT briefing note 1 / 2021
  • Franck Düvell

A central aim of the FFVT project is to specifically strengthen internationalisation in the field of forced migration and refugee studies. Thereby, it aspires to address various shortcomings identified in the ongoing debate on the politics of knowledge production. Internationalisation, however, is more than just a praxis, more than just doing internationalisation, but a concept based on critical theoretical reflections on scientific knowledge production. We thus aim to combine a pragmatic approach with some theoretical underpinning. In this FFVT briefing note, the author Franck Düvell, highlights the findings from some key publications on internationalising scientific cooperation in this field.
