The Pufendorf IAS initiative aims to explore new conceptual, theoretical approaches as well as methodological innovations to address processes linked to migration. The Pufendorf IAS invites researchers from all faculties into dialogue on crosscutting issues on migration such as ecology, politics, archeology and medicine. The ambition is to create a network of researchers with an interest in exploring this area further.
