In this seminar “migration and flight” is framed as a social problem, which is addressed through public interventions. In common separate problemdefinitions or so calles “crisis” are attributed which are part of a process of institutionalization. Insofar neither problems build our focus but rather the decision-makers and their organizations with their typical social and historic spheres und structures are central. Sociological interesting is the way how certain definition- and interpretation-processes take place in the public discourse (vgl. Groenemeyer et al. 2012:119). In terms of organisational analysis and migration research we reconstruct the empirical work from Wolfgang Gratz (2016) study “„Das Management der Flüchtlingskrise – Never let a good crisis go to waste“. Students interview decision makers in the field of “migration and flight” and make organizational analysis based on these data. The aims of the course are theoretical background in organizational research and migration studies as well as gaining empirical practice in the field.
