Projects within the legal perspective should focus on international, European or comparative public law; they may, but need not, incorporate questions surrounding German law. Proposals may deal with issues concerning the rights of forced migrants and refugees as well as the corresponding duties of the different actors involved (e.g. with respect to the principle of non‐refoulement and other human rights obligations). The examined actors can be States, organisations (incl. the UN and the Council of Europe), NGOs or the affected individuals. Projects may either address current legal developments or recent public policy proposals in the (inter)national domaine. Alternatively, projects may also involve questions of basic legal research (“Grundlagenforschung”) relevant for the protection of the (human) rights of refugees and forced migrants, e.g. the relationship of the different legal orders of protection or the theoretical characterization of how the overall legal order in the field of migration and refugee law is currently evolving.
