Applied Research on Integration and Migration
The mission of the Expert Council on Integration and Migration is to provide independent, research-based and actionable policy advice on integration and migration. The Expert Council’s scientific staff, who are based in its Berlin Office, both support and complement its work through applied research projects. Members of the scientific staff are guided in their work by, among other things, the Code of Conduct Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Research Practice published by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in September 2019. They have also developed their own “Standards for Good Scientific Practice Applicable to the Work of the Expert Council”. Key principles include disclosing research results and providing access to those research results and the data sets on which they are based.
