How can we bring academic knowledge on migration into European classrooms in innovative ways? In this project, and in close dialogue with teachers, students, and migrants, we develop best practice guidelines and ten innovative teaching modules covering different aspects of migration to be taught in classrooms across Europe. The modules are 45-minutes long and use interactive teaching methods such as storytelling and audio-visual methods. These modules will be freely available on the website in six languages and can be taught in different subjects and school types. Check out our work here!

asylos – research for asylum
At Asylos, we believe that every asylum seeker deserves a fair opportunity to claim his or her right to protection. Evidence to prove persecution or to support the credibility of individual testimony is a vital element in the decisions taken to grant or withhold asylum. But many refugees and their legal representatives cannot access this necessary information. Asylos provides services free of charge to lawyers and caseworkers around the world assisting asylum seekers through their legal procedures. We produce case-based and broader country-of-origin information (COI) research reports which lawyers and caseworkers can use to support a variety of protection-based claims in court. I have been involved as volunteer in asylos since 2011 and serve on the Board of Trustees of the organization since 2017 and am vice-chair of the board since 2021. Check out our work here!
