IU scholars Assad Al-Saleh, Günther Jikeli, Haidar Khezri, and Alvin Rosenfeld have done field work in Germany for the project „Syrian and Iraqi Refugees in Germany, Antisemitism, Islamism, and Integration.“ They have interviewed 85 refugees over the summer. The study is funded by the President's International Research Award.
A pre-study with group interviews with an additional 68 refugees was done in December 2016. A summary of the results of this pre-study is now available in English. The study has been discussed in German and English media outlets, such as Financial Times, JTA, Reuters, and the Washington Post.
This report was created for the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Berlin, Ramer Institute for German-Jewish Relations and for the second conference of the German Network for Researching and Combating Antisemitism (NEBA). The study was made possible by the generous support of the “Bennet Fund” and the “Meyer Fund.”
