Title PhD project: Participation through integration management? An analysis of the program BENN – Berlin develops new neighborhoods (working title)
Short description PhD project:
Despite it’s ongoing criticism, Germany has adopted as common procedure to accommodate refugees in large shelters. Thus, calling for a political and social integration of refugees in accordance to their environment is highly contradictory. In this antagonistic situation Berlin has launched its new urban development program BENN – Berlin enwickelt neue Nachbarschaften – “Berlin develops new neighborhoods”, which aim to include both, refugees and neighbors. Hence, the central question of my dissertation project asks why sociospatial processes and integration are closely linked and what conflicts evolve through the negotiation processes. The basis of this is formed through the assumption that there are overarching mechanisms of action, that influence the local room of manoeuvring and directly affect neighborhood processes.
