Refugees - Science topic
Persons fleeing to a place of safety, especially those who flee to a foreign country or power to escape danger or persecution in their own country or habitual residence because of race, religion, or political belief. (Webster, 3d ed)
Questions related to Refugees
Anyone who is familiar with the refugee crisis in Turkey and/or Lebanon in particular management of the camps located in Gaziantep, Hatay, Sanliurfa, Kahramanmaras, Osmaniye, Adiyaman, and Kilis, please reach out to me directly for connection and collaboration of information referencing the refugee crisis.
I just wondered how colleagues relate their research on Deaf migrant and refugees to other fields or if they think the issues about Deaf migrants and refugees should be considered as an interdisciplinary commitment between Deaf Studies and Migration Studies.
In the legal field of custody pending deportation (Abschiebungshaft) in the Federal Republic of Germany, errors happen more frequently in the lower instance, the district court. Above all, it is procedural errors that lead to decisions later being found to be unlawful, for example, a lawyer who can be seen from the files is not contacted or there is insufficient language mediation. In terms of reasons for this, the lack of time and the density of court proceedings are often put forward first, leading to a lower qualitative examination. In the same way, legal ignorance can sometimes be observed in the legal field of custody pending deportation.
I am interested in whether there are other areas of law in which similar errors can be identified at the lowest level? In other words, procedural errors that happen again and again.
Dear distinguished colleague,
Recently we have started comparative global research that we have started recently on 'Students' perception on the Russia-Ukraine war 2022' (link to the website: http://www.covidsoclab.org/russia-ukraine-war-2022/), covering various economic and social effects of this war. The global comparative analysis helps us formulate the most useful recommendations for policymakers.
If you are interested in participating (as a contact person and a potential co-author of a joint paper, do let me know to give you further guidelines – see also research guidelines on the webpage: http://www.covidsoclab.org/russia-ukraine-war-2022/research-guidelines/). Your main task at this stage would be to motivate students from your institution (or wider in the country) to complete the online questionnaire by 30 April 2022 at the latest (here is only a preview link: https://1ka.arnes.si/a/60ee60a0&preview=on). When we have the results, we will analyse and compare them (between countries included in our study - then is a plan to prepare academic article(s) relating to different (e.g., economic and social aspects) of the Russia-Ukraine war 2022 together with the analysed results of our questionnaire survey). You will also receive data from your country/institution in order to deploy it in further research. The detailed dissemination plan will be finalised later according to the interests of international partners.
If your time is limited and do not allow you to fully join at this moment, we would kindly ask you if you could motivate and share a link with your students to fill out the questionnaire (please, do see a message and a link for students below) and we will be happy to provide you with the data/result/report for your institution.
Please, do not hesitate to contact me in case of any further queries.

Fruit fly is one of many pest on the chili farming. Fruit fly can destroy until 100% yields. Using plant that function as repellent or refuge can decrease pesticide. Maybe there is any plant.
This is for research about important issues to repatriation of refugees. Literature (or UNHCR documents) connecting forced migration/repatriation to political/civic engagement would be appreciated. Also, any literature or documents about definitions for political engagement or civic engagement are also needed.
Is there anyone who is looking for research collaboration about the Refugees especially focus on the economic lifestyle, economic factor, etc I am available. Currently doing work for refugees who are living in the Cox's Bazar. I am ready to work with you.

It is shocking that we let immigrant/refugee children in our countries and then do not pro-actively adress the widely-known challenge they may face: low avademic achievement thats leads to drop out from school that leads to unemployment. Please provide your valuable suggestion on how to solve this. Thank you.
I am still in the early stages of this, however I am thinking of exploring the potential football has, as a means to aid the integration of Venezuelan refugees in countries like Peru and Columbia. I am reading that similar to Europe, refugees are subject to racism and resentment. While also in Europe, football clubs have started to partner up refugee forums to help. UEFA recently wrote a report of their commitment to helping the cause. I also wonder if CONEBOL could implement the same action. Early indictors suggest their is a gap in the literature, when it comes to refugees and football in South America.
Refugee crisis was a reality worldwide just a while before the COVID-19 pandemic. What are the current and upcoming effects of the pandemic in refugee crisis and human rights?
I am working on designing an gender based violence (GBV) program evaluation tool to measure frequency of violence against men and boys over time. But I could not find any resources on this. Any resource materials would highly recommended.
I would like to take your point of view about three possible research questions that I'm finding it hard to choose for my master thesis about naturalizing refugees and the impact on host countries. It's going to be a qualitative paper reviewing the literature mostly. The questions are as follow:
1: How are immigrant’s social and economic adaption and integration related to individual characteristics? How will naturalization affect their employment chances and wages? In other words does the economic gap between migrants and refugees affect the naturalization process when entering the labor market in host countries?
2: How refugees succeed economically in some countries and why not in others?
3: How does the remittance behavior or share differ for a naturalized refugee/migrant from the unnaturalized? What are the effects on the socio-economic and demography level of a host country?
I will really appreciate the honest opinions and suggestions related to the topic
What would be the best methodology to research on the socio-economic, environmental & political implication of refugees on host community?
Dear researchers and colleagues,
I hope you are well and in good health.
I wanted to design an individual-level interview protocol for refugee entrepreneurs and eco-system agents (e.g.., government agencies, investors, financial institutions, local development agencies, etc.)
I appreciate it if you can help me with related literature.
Architectural and economic aspects are important. But beyond that, challenges and solutions need to be addressed comprehensively and viewed holistically in the new city model. Reducing inequality and achieving sustainability are two objectives that should be pursued, but the challenges will vary depending on each city and its degree of development. In European cities, the situation may not be as dramatic as it is in emerging countries, but this could change as a result of various factors, such as the aging of the population, the influx of refugees of war or natural disasters, and unemployment. Therefore, a key aim in Europe is to ensure that large cities are engines of sustainable economic growth where particular population segments—such as young people—can find work, whereas the goal in developing countries such as Brazil, Colombia, and India is to provide housing and basic services for all social classes. This aspect is very important not only from the standpoint of housing but also for governance and city strategy.
The current global pandemic, the climate crisis, the destruction of the oceans (with plastics, etc), and massive numbers of refugees are part of a set of serious global problems.
It is clear that most states' focus on nationalism and a general lack of support or trust in the UN is rendering global efforts to confront these problems as lacking. What can educators do about this impending danger?
In Canada and the US, social studies education includes a multicultural perspective based on national pride. the time has come to teach less from a nationalistic view and one looking at the world from a type of cosmopolitanism. Conservatives will likely react negatively to such a suggestion, but the situation warrants support for global citizenship.
I already have one called: Refugees, Migration and National Security: States, Intelligence Agencies and the Perpetual Global Crisis - Case Study, Kenya. But I find a lot of papers online on this topic.
Therefore am requesting you my learned colleagues to help me identify a suitable RESEARCH PROPOSAL. I would prefer proposals that focus on Africa.
I am looking for projects/initiatives regarding refugee representation and new media technologies. I am interested in researching how refugees use new media technology to represent themselves and how that contrast or not with mainstream representations. Can anyone suggest to me some research on the topic or does anyone know about specific projects/initiatives to check out?
This would be my Master Thesis on Migration Studies and I would really appreciate any advice, suggestion, or observation concerning the topic!
Thank you so much in advance
South Africa has a significant number of refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers, coming mostly from the rest of Africa, but also elsewhere. The Covid-19 pandemic has accentuated the vulnerabilities already experienced by the poor in accessing housing and basic services. How has the refugee, asylum seeker and migrant population in your country (for those who live in countries with this group) been affected by the pandemic in respect of access to and affordability of housing and services, what interventions have been put in place to assist them, and how effective have such been?
We are looking for the most recent information on older immigrants and asylum seekers in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Conventioned dealt with the realities after the last second world war and with a world population of 2.5 billion. Since then, third world countries have experienced increased population rates and low prospority whereas in the developped world the opposite happened.
The Convention thus, deals with a definition of a problem that is alien to today's realities and its solutions may be anachronistic.
The Convention's last ammedment was with the Protocol of New York.
I do hope that all of you are doing well and staying safe amid the COVID-19.
I'm trying to find research papers or data that gives a global view about the difference in the composition of refugees and migrants (age, gender, higher education...) basically information about the demographic, economic status and education of these categories.
Thanking you in advance,
Have a great weekend and stay safe
I am interested in understanding more about NGOs that work with refugees. I am brainstorming a project that does not involve IRB approval.
“If an outbreak were to happen, it would be close to impossible to contain,” Syrian-American activist Leena Zahia said.
She was speaking about the possibility of a Covid-19 epidemic in the refugee camps, both inside and outside Syria, that cumulatively house millions of people displaced by the civil war, a prospect that gives public health and aid workers nightmares these days. In the camp of Vial, on the Greek island of Chios, for example, more than 6,000 people are now crammed into a space intended for about 1,000.
The paucity of food in the refugee camps has led to an epidemic of malnourishment. There is a lack of basic sanitation, with far too few toilets and bathrooms. And there are next to no state-of-the-art medical supplies and very few doctors. In the camps in and around Syria, for example, Zahia estimates only 1.4 doctors for every 10,000 people.
It will be the most difficult one to control if it spreads among Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh where more than 8,60,000 stateless Rohingya refugees live in the world’s largest and most densely populated refugee camp, Kutupalong. About half of the refugees are children. Can you imagine what can be happened if the Corona outbreak is there?

I am PhD student. I am studying on Readmission Agreement and its negative effects on refugee rights, especially the principle of non-refoulment. I would like to discuss my topic with another colleague studying same subject area.
Is there any theoretical framework that allows for a comparative view of forced migration with "other types" of migration (e.g. expatriation, etc.)?
I am looking for any work that looks at forced migration within a broader theoretical framework on migration. So far, I have only found suggestions of such a perspective in the works of Richmond (1988; 1993) and Bakewell (2010), but have not been able to find any further opinions on this...
Hi, this is a question regarding my thesis and to whether I should frame is as a case study or an action research thesis.
In my educational technology thesis (including Human-Computer Interaction as well), I have developed a participatory design process for educational systems in the refugee context based on the literature from (refugee studies, motivation and engagement, design processes, and participatory design approaches and methods).
My design process consists of stages (understanding and relationship building, problem analysis, participatory design, implementation, and evaluation) where each stage has a set of sub-tasks that need to be completed with suggested methods. Then I have implemented the design process in two case studies in two refugee camps in order to evaluate and improve the design process based on the collected data.
I must note that the research methods and the research approach are very participatory at all stages where NGO workers, teachers, parents, and even children participated in the decision making of the designed systems.
My main research questions were regarding what is an effective design process in this context of displacement, what are the design challenges that would be faced and how should they be managed, and finally, how can technology be designed in the future to be most effective in emergency education of refugee children.
My questions is that: should my thesis frame my field work as a case study research, or as action research, since I was introducing an action (the design process implementation) and looking to evaluate, confirm, and improve my literature based design process from real-life data.
Do you have any suggestion to which is the most suitable case study or action research?
By international competencies, I mean those who have lived in more than one country for some period of time (Third-culture kids (TCKs), expats, refugees, immigrants, etc.)
Recently on January 23, 2020, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Hague ordered Myanmar to take all necessary measures to protect Rohingya Muslims from genocide. Killing has been reported even after that. How do you evaluate this order and the response of the authority of Myanmar to that?
To be a refugee or a migrant is an experience unlike others, it is at once to be a no-place person (1) and at the same time to live everywhere ; belonging to many places, if only fleetingly. It is in many senses “a”, if not “the” modern defining experience as people appear, and perhaps also are, ever more mobile. Existentially it is what has been called refugeeness, and in so doing denotes an experience lived in the flesh of the body, in the flesh of language and in the flesh of community (social bonds and interactions).
Social inclusion and wellbeing are a fundamental human right and intimately connected with the right to reside in a country. For refugees and migrants this takes on multiple and new forms as digital experiences increasingly wrap every part of our being. It can refer to maintaining social capital through shared digitally mediated conversations and images with friends and relatives in the homeland. It can also be about producing and accessing digital information and learning resources that can support social inclusion and wellbeing in the new country.

Obviously malnutrition is a major issue in the Rohingya refugee camps. What other health concerns are at the top of the list in terms of their threat to the communities?
Please suggest a good topic in the field of Sociology with specialization with migration and urbanization, refugees as well as related to family.
I am working at a wildlife refuge in Idaho this summer and this morning I was on an eld survey drive when I came across 10-15 red tail hawks perched right next to each other on multiple posts and shrubs over an open field. I had never seen so many together at one time! Would love to know if anyone has any input. Is this a common thing? I had never hear of this with this species, would love to know the reasons of this behavior. I have my theories but wasn't sure if anyone had an answer.
In light of today's arrest in Italy of a German sea captain who had rescued migrant refugees in the Mediterranean does the law of the sea need to be clarified?
The 1979 International Convention on Maritime Search and Rescue establishes a legal framework for signatories to co-ordinate rescue efforts. According to the International Maritime Organization, which helped put together the principles behind rescue at sea, its member states also have an obligation "to co-ordinate so that persons rescued at sea are disembarked in a place of safety as soon as possible".
However, there are a number of issues. One problem is over defining distress, according to Yves Pascouau, editor of the European Migration Law website. which offers advice on asylum and immigration law across the EU. "This is a question of interpretation," he says.The vessel was not in obvious mechanical difficulty as it approached Maltese and Italian waters and he adds: "They (Italy and Malta) did not consider the definition of distress had been met."
There are also issues over what constitutes a place of safety, and whether that means disembarking those rescued at sea on land. "There is no obligation on a state responsible for a specific search and rescue area, or responsible for co-ordinating a rescue effort, to receive the survivors on land," says Ainhoa Campas Velasco of the Institute of Maritime Law at University of Southampton. However, she points out that humanitarian considerations are meant to form part of search and rescue operations.
It is also worth remembering that under maritime regulations, states have the authority to allow or refuse permission for vessels to enter their territorial waters.
Do we need greater clarity and agreed legal obligations to save life at sea?
Hi, I am a novice research and currently putting together a proposal for research with refugee children at a centre. I do not know the number of children as I am not able to access this data due to their privacy act until my proposal is accepted. I have had some reviewer feedback asking how I determined the sample size and this is based on my guesstimate while doing volunteer work at the centre. My question is regarding some feedback I received about how I will determine power of the sample. How would I go about doing this? Is it possible when I don't actually know the population number?
Many, many thanks in advance.
To validate our new Arabic language parenting measure we'd like to correlate it with a brief validated measure of mental health. I can't find anything that fits other than the K10, which we are already using in our study as an outcome measure. The SRQ 20 was validated with students in UAE, but this is quite a different population than Syrian refugees.

As a developing country Rohingyas are too much threatened for Bangladesh. they are also threatened for economic development, so Bangladesh Govt. Should take necessary steps for solving the Rohingya refugee crisis as soon as possible.
I'm doing my Master research about the conformation of the refugee team for Rio 2016 throught an analysis of the institutionalism theory. However, it is not clear how was the selection of these athletes and the information that i have founded is very general.
If anyone has information or knows someone who can help me with my research, i will appreciate it.
I am wondering what would be an acceptable sample size when you are trying to survey a population that is hard to access, especially if you don't have access to data that indicate the size of that population in the first place. Thank you !
This question is in relation to my current project on the application of GIS to vaccine-preventable diseases in refugees. I am attempting to determine what the burden of vaccine-preventable disease is for refugees, but thus far this seems to be an area of literature gap. I have found literature that addresses individual diseases, but I would like more data and again on the overall burden. Thank you everyone, for any and all help.
I am writing a dissertation to explore motivations of international volunteers giving their time to assist with refugee projects in Greece and Calais. I will be collecting data via survey and/or interviews with volunteers.
I was wondering if anyone is able to suggest any relevant theoretical frameworks that I could apply to/explore for my research.
Many thanks in advance
We are planning to conduct a survey about employer attitudes about refugees (Syrians in Hatay, Turkey) and its consequences for labor market integration. We want to find out the factors that makes the employers hire refugees with legal work permissions and register them to social security agency. This will be my masters student's thesis. We have 4 items to measure perceived risk of having unregistered foreign workers, 5 items to measure perceived economic benefit of having registered foreign worker, 3 items for Subjective norm, and 4 items for ethnic stereotyping.
However our DV "intention to register foreign workers" has only one item. Do you think it is OK to use this single item variable in SEM?
Actually I think it would be very interesting to conduct a comparative study, once we complete our study too. So, we are also open for collaboration on this issue.
The theme of my paper has the aim to examine social and cultural adaption on individual refugees in Denmark, while they waiting on family reunification.
I have researched on theories, however I find it difficult to find theories that fits the theme.
Any suggestions on theories?
Thanks in advance.
I'm planning to run some laboratory experiments with similarly sized juvenile northern pike (0+). I know cannibalism is a problem. We plan to keep up to 10 individuals in a 15 L tank. Separating individual fish with nets etc. is not an option. Would some kind of physical refuge help to alleviate the problems of cannibalism? Any experiences on this topic are much appreciated.
This is my topic question for my bachelor thesis. I have done some research in Norwegian literature and articles, but not so much in foreign literature and research yet. But the question is about what we do in Norwegian kinder-gardens, so i am looking for both what we do in Norway and what they do in other countries when it comes to minorities, to compare.
I'm Portuguese and I want to do an academic specialization and research on human rights, specifically in what concerns to migrations and refugees.
Furthermore I would like to develop professional work on this area.
Do any researchers have expertise or experience in the study of motivation for refugees and immigrants in higher educational settings?
In an effort to distinguish between 'declared intent' of refugees and internally displaced persons to the question whether 'they see themselves returning to the place they left' - to which almost all reply positively - I was wondering whether the existence of (newly created) social capital and connectedness in their place of exile is actually in 'inhibitor' / barrier/ 'reason not' to actual returns.
Does anybody have any thoughts, examples, suggestions?
Since this (Syrian IDPs) is a relatively new topic, I first want to check how much literature has been published on Syrian IDPs (I am not talking about newspapers or blog type publications here, but more academic resources).
Thank you for your help
Denmark's government has struck a deal to move "unwanted" migrants to a remote uninhabited island once used for contagious animals. As part of a growing anti-immigration agenda, Danish immigration minister Inger Støjberg, of the center-right Venstre party, wrote on Facebook that certain people "are unwanted and they will feel it."
What could be interesting to survey with this topic?
Any suggestions on theories that could be relevant to consider ?

Men are glaringly absent from the ranks of those who know their HIV status and then act to get care. Is your project investigating that question among the refugees you are studying? Men 39-50; male youth 15-24?
For an intervention aimed at helping refugee parents lower their stress and strengthen their stress management skills), my colleagues and I need a measure that assesses capacity to effectively manage stress. I haven't had much luck while combing the lit but perhaps I'm missing some good tools. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
The nation that plays a major role in the past crisis is China, the main ally of the North Koreans, who try to persuade both sides not to raise the tension. China's interest in keeping North Korea away from conflict is for practical rather than ideological reasons - if there is a collapse of the North Korean regime, the eventual unification of Korea would result in a strengthening of North American influence in a region close to its border. Moreover, the outbreak of a conflict would almost certainly provoke a movement of refugees towards the Chinese territory, which the government of Beijing seeks to avoid.
I would like to conduct research with refugees who speak Arabic. I have the BSI-18, PTGI, PANAS, RSES, and SWL along with their psychometric properties for Arabic speaking peoples. If someone has translated-backtranslated and centered the PCL-5 and CES then I can use them; if not, I need to do so. I cannot find publications. Are there any conference proceedings or contacts with whom I can talk? Thank you for your help.
Though the Housing Resettlement implemented after disasters for the refugees and high risk zones residents, the pay back or the return of the investment is not enough to recover the required benefit or, either residents can not re-sell the property to its actual cost.
What would be the reasons for the value degradation of these types of properties?
What would be the appropriate suggestions to design/construct these settlements in a way maximizing its ROI?
For a study, I tried to reach this source. However, I couldn't find it in our databases. If you have, could I request an electronical copy of it? Thank you so much for your attention.
In trying to find new empirical context to apply the concept of social inclusion, I’m looking for studies that have adopted social inclusion/exclusion to evaluate refugees and asylum seekers marooned in Indonesia.
