Publications by WU Researchers tied to the SDGs

Dr. Judith Kohlenberger: Das Fluchtparadox

Dr. Kohlenberger is a renowned Social Scientist and Immigration Researcher. Her newest book, Das Fluchtparadox has been awarded the Science Book of the Year by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. It provides a "detailed analysis of how we deal with displacement and displaced persons, traces historical and recent developments, not just since the war in Ukraine, from a legal, social and individual perspective, and shows how we can arrive at a humane asylum and integration policy if we accept our moral responsibility and trust the strength of our institutions, our rule of law and our civil society". The book explores the issue of the asylum paradox, "the impossibility of legal access to (the right to) asylum, as a result of which refugees have to ‘break the law’ to access their rights, i.e. enter a state without an asylum title to apply for it within the borders of that state". The book is currently only available in German, but we can learn about the key themes outlined in a shorter article in English. For further information, please refer to Dr. Kohlenberger´s other publications.
