Architectures of Asylum: Appropriation Processes in Refugee Accomodation

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"The subproject ‘Architectures of Asylum’ examines the re-figuration of spaces with the example of physical-material and symbolic appropriation processes of refugees at the asylum accommodations. The project is guided by the hypothesis that the extreme situation of refugees makes visible processes of the re-figuration of spaces that are also generally effective in other migration processes. We intend to ground a new theory and practical insights for an urbanized society that is increasingly mobile and influenced by intercultural encounters. The focus is on the following research questions: What spatial knowledge do people make relevant to their particular situation in the state of hovering between place of origin, dramatic escape and the arriving and uncertain period of stay at an unfamiliar place of asylum? What is the relationship between the subjective experiences of space, which have been collected in different places and contexts? How do spatial constitutions change in their relationship dynamics with an ongoing period of time, and by what factors are changes influenced? Further questions are: How does refugees’ spatial knowledge hybridize practices of the place of origin, experiences made during the escape, as well as during the arrival at an unfamiliar place of asylum? And how do spatial appropriation processes collide with humanitarian logics and technocratic emergency management approaches at the place of asylum? Empirically, the study will focus on Syrian refugees who have found shelter at asylum accommodations as of 2012 in Jordan and Germany. The study is designed as a qualitative comparative study, which explores the arrival and the establishment of refugees at different asylum centres and draws conclusions on the re-figuration process of space. We ethnographically and spatially explore refugee shelters in both Jordan and in Germany. In Germany, our case field sites are emergency accommodation facilities in Berlin Lichtenberg, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, Neukölln, and Kreuzberg, including the surrounding urban contexts. The case study fieldsite in Jordan is the urbanized UN refugee camp Zaatari, close to the city of Amman. We assume that the comparative study of the very different conditions to which the Syrian refugees are exposed in Jordan and Germany provide information also on how the context of the asylum accommodation affects the refugees’ spatial localisation and relocation process."

Urbanization in China's South-western Borderlands. The case of Jinghong, Xiguangbanna

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This interdisciplinary research project aims to study urbanization in China’s non-metropolitan and non-industrial ethnic-diverse border regions under post-socialism. Literature on urbanization in China focuses mainly on traditional large metropolitan or industrial cities in the center with Han majority population, and examines either the structural or the subjective features of urban development. The complex dynamics of urbanization and power relations in the new cities in the periphery remain understudied. The project fills this knowledge gap, by exploring how urbanization intersects with tourism growth and in-migration and affects ethnic relations in Jinghong, a fast-growing city in China’s south-western borderlands. In Jinghong, the Han, China’s ethnic majority, have become the city’s drivers of urban and economic development, competing over land, resources and political power with long-term Dai/Tai minority ethnic residents. Unconventionally drawing on methods of Anthropology, Urban Planning, Architecture, Urban Geography, and Sociology, this pioneering project aims at producing a theoretically and empirically innovative analysis that combines structural, socio-economic, and political examination with an investigation of subjective and experiential aspects of urbanization, highlighting conflicts, mindsets, and prejudices in the day-to-day urban interactions between Han majority and ethnic minority citizens and the state. I expect that the development of this project will profoundly impact my career. Thanks to training provided by the Department of Architecture, Design and Urban Planning, at the University of Sassari, Italy’s utmost interdisciplinary institution of Architecture and Urban Planning, I will acquire new skills and build fruitful relations with European institutions and scholars. The training, network and publications of the project’s outcome will allow me to increase my possibilities of obtaining an ERC Grant.

Remote Sanitation – New sustainable sanitation solution for remote areas

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Low quality sanitation is a huge global, growing environmental and health problem with large costs to society. Poor hygiene and waste treatment results in lower productivity, spreading of diseases and pollution. There is a lack of efficient and green solutions addressing specific sanitation needs in remote areas such as: refugee and military camps, remote industrial and household sites. The awareness of the problem is increasing and authorities have begun to act within this area - e.g. the United Nations Environment Programme has stated that “every dollar invested in safe water and sanitation has a pay back of US$3 to US $34 depending on the region and the technology deployed”. Aalborg Rørteknik ApS (ART) have invented a new sanitation solution, applicable in remote areas without access to sewage infrastructure. This turnkey system solution, consisting of 3 main modules (hygiene unit, waste water treatment, sludge handling), has superior advantages to alternative solutions by being e.g. mobile, reusable, hygienic, environmentally friendly and affordable. In addition, ART will include services such as camp architecture, installation and maintenance, ensuring maxmized efficiency of the solution. Red Cross have been an important contributor in the project and also led the way to market introduction targetting aidworker base camps. The unique selling points of the new solution are estimated to secure a market share of 15% within 5 years, resulting in an enhanced profitability and significant growth for ART. In this phase 1 study, ART will perform a demonstration exercice, as well as conduct extended market studies to develop an appropriate IP strategy, in preparation of a phase 2 project. The outcome of this stage, will be a feasibility report and business plan. This project and requested financial support, will address an innovative and sustainable solution, with clear benefits for users, with consequent impacts in the environment and the society as a whole.

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
" In the SmartIdentifikation project, a German-Austrian project consortium is addressing challenges of migration management in Austria and Germany, which have become increasingly important as a result of the 2015 / 16 refugee movement. In addition to the identification of individuals based on their smartphone data, the focus is on the recognition of (unaccompanied) minors and the identification and analysis of smuggling routes. In the context of these goals, the interdisciplinary project teams pursue ethical, legal and acceptance-relevant questions on an equal footing with the technical challenges and goals. The scientific and technical work objectives refer to the following aspects: Development of a system for systematic evaluation of smartphone data for the identification of individuals Determining the age of persons on photos and adaptation to the application for the detection of minor Development of tools for trend analysis and visualization of smuggling routes Interface for secure data exchange Processing of data protection issues with regard to the use of personal and private data Review and implementation of applicable ethical frameworks Analyzing the importance of privacy for citizens in a field study Partners: Lehrstuhl für Communication Science, RWTH Aachen Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt am Main Hochschule der Medien, Stuttgart Bundespolizeipräsidium Potsdam G2K Group GmbH, München SBA Research GmbH, Wien T3K-Forensics GmbH, Wien Kibosec GmbH, Wien Universität Wien Bundesministerium für Inneres, Wien T3K Forensics GmbH (assoziierter Partner) SAP Deutschland SE & Co.

"Ensuring Humanitarian Safety through Real-time Situational Awareness for Efficient Management of Migration Movements"

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"A challenging aspect of the HUMAN+ project is to differentiate whether movement data at hand is indicative of migration or something else. Part of the project is to understand this essential difference and to relate the findings back to the data. This aspect also ties into other research questions. Because once migration patterns patterns are identified, the next steps are to use them as a basis for future movement estimations. Finally, the resulting spatiotemporally complex information has to be visualised comprehensively, so that it can be used productively by others. Over the last years, migration movements from areas struck by war, economical or other humanitarian crises towards Europe have intensified. These developments pose major challenges to authorities, municipalities, relief organizations, NGOs, as well as the police. Current events, including the migration wave in 2015/16 in Austria and Germany, have shown that established methods in migration management have reached their limits because rapidly available data and user-centred information for decision support to ensure humanitarian security is oftentimes lacking. The HUMAN+ project aims to remedy this situation by providing comprehensive, objective data and information about migration movements to decision makers in near real-time. As the topic at hand is not only very complex from a technical perspective, but also from social, political and ethical points of view, HUMAN+ also includes ethical, sociological and legal guidelines for the use of the highly sensitive data and information that it concerns. The project aims to achieve three goals: Detection and prediction of migration movements, as well as identification of areas that are frequently passed during migrations. Creation of near real-time overviews about current migration movements including data analyses and short-term forecasting. Information and decision support in form of user dependent interactive information visualisation, (semi-) automated assessment of quality and interoperability. The results of the HUMAN+ project will help to mitigate the problems that arise in the wake of large migration movements, and thus make such events more manageable for all parties involved by giving them tools which allow them to plan ahead when and where resources will be needed the most.
