Two of the ten sub-projects in all are settled at the University of Bamberg and one of them at the Sociology in Bamberg: Prof. Dr. Henriette Engelhardt-Wölfler from the Professorship for Demography and Doris Lüken-Klaßen from the State Institute for Family Research at the University of Bamberg (ifb) manage the projectArrival. Family Education and Counselling of Refugee Families". Based on a qualitative longitudinal study they analyze together with Sarah Ali Mohamed, how institutions of social work react to the immigration of refugees, what kind of challenges professionals face, and how a peaceful coexistence and the integration of refugee parents and children can be promoted in the long term.
