Christiane Fröhlich researches human mobility with a particular focus on environmental drivers of migration (with a focus on the Middle East, Syria in particular) as well as the role of the Global North for current migration movements from the Global South (from a Postcolonial Perspective). During a fellowship in Turkey, she also inquired into the impact of the EU-Turkey deal on the lived experience of refugees residing in Turkey. In the past, she has worked extensively on water conflicts on the international, national and local levels, as well as on the Israeli-Palestinian core conflict and its role for Middle Eastern geopolitics.
