Ziel der Studie

The report published by ZOiS focuses on the question of education in the context of displacement, looking specifically at the challenges and conditions that emerge in the very first months after arrival.  The findings showed the extent to which pursuing their education in parallel in Germany and Ukraine is placing a double burden on young Ukrainians.


The study draws on an original survey conducted among displaced Ukrainian parents in Germany in the summer of 2022 as well as numerous qualitative interviews with both parents and pupils (6-18 years). The online survey circulated via Telegram groups and Facebook from August 2022. It included several questions on the ecounter with the German educational system, i.e. its administrative aspects. In-depth interviews took place as well, aiming to gain a better understanding of the context.
