On Current Occasion


Temporary protection in Germany since 2015

A conversation with Constantin Hruschka

CeMig guest Kari Drangsland and her colleagues in the TemPro-Project have released a new episode of the podcast “Refugee Law and Refugee Lives”. In this episode they talk with Constantin Hruschka, Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Social Law and Social Policy in Munich, about the changes towards temporary protection in Germany since 2015. Doing this they draw historical lines back to earlier guest worker policies, the temporary protection of Bosnian and Kosovar refugees in the 1990s, as well as to important legal reforms such as the “asylum compromise” in 1992/1993 and the Immigration Act of 2004.

The podcast is available on Soudcloud, and Spotify, Podbean, I-tunes podcast or Google podcast
