The University magazine “Portal” reports what is happening at the UP – it contains information on important developments and relevant events, presents interesting initiatives and projects, portrays employees and students, and provides insights into the different international activities and research at the university. In its last issue (Portal 1/2017) they put their spotlight on our Chair member Safa’a AbuJarour and her involvement with refugees.
In his article “Integration 4.0”, Matthias Zimmermann describes Safa’a AbuJarour’s voluntary work with refugees and her academic research at the Chair for Social Media and Data Science on the role of technology in the social inclusion of refugees in Germany. He also maps out different additional outcomes – initiatives like place4refugees.de and student projects like “Who are the refugees” – and future activities.
