F08 – Threatened Solidarities

Project within the CRC 923

Project F08: ‘Threatened Solidarities’. Mobilising discourses and practices in refugee aid.

Project F08 takes a diachronic approach to the self-image and identity narrative of German society as a threatened system of order in the aftermath of the “refugee crisis”. The project analyses how actors in refugee aid programs have dealt with the threats of nationalism and racism. In particular, it focuses on the interplay between protests and aid projects as places of mobilization, on the operationalization of the ideal of solidarity in everyday life, and on the effects of experiences of success and failure on re-ordering.


Research interests:

  • Solidarity, common properties, convivialism.
  • Research in and about social movements
  • Theories of practice
  • Critical migration research
  • Critical urban research
