Christiane Fröhlich is a senior research fellow at the German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA) in Hamburg. She is particularly interested in the intersection between forced migration, global environmental change, and socio-political upheaval, and in the interactions between mobility governance and state survival, consolidation, and (trans)formation. 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)” and the DAAD-funded Climate Centre “Sustainable Adaptation to Global Change in the Middle East” (SAGE-Centre). Fröhlich holds a PhD from the Center for Conflict Studies at Marburg University, and is speaker of the German Network for Forced Migration Studies.
