Christiane Fröhlich researches human mobility in the context of political and ecological crisis within and from the Global South at the GIGA German Institute for Global and Area Studies in Hamburg. She is particularly interested in understandings of migration/mobility as ‘critical’ in different socio-political contexts and in the intersections between human mobility, global environmental change, and socio-political upheaval. Her regional focus is mainly on the Middle East (Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel/Palestine, Turkey), where she has conducted extensive field research. She is also engaged in cross-regional comparative projects, including the EU-funded consortium “Migration Governance and Asylum Crises (MAGYC)“, in which she leads a work package on “Comparing Crises. Lessons from «migration crises» in North Africa, the Middle East and the Greater Horn of Africa.” Fröhlich holds a PhD from the Center for Conflict Studies at Marburg University.
