Abstract

This study thematizes the experiences of the Syrian women who fled to Germany to escape the crises that has been ongoing since 2011. Adding to the traumatizing escape from their home country, ensuing the loss of their previous status and life, the women must orient themselves in a new environment, adapting to a new culture with different laws and customs. The women had been accompanied by a gruelling uncertainty since the beginning of the war in Syria, and the question is raised what effects the resettlement had on the women’s life and how they adapted to the new situation. To provide an answer, an extensive fieldwork has been completed in Bayreuth, Berlin and Brandenburg, including 44 interviews with Syrian refugee women of all ages and with different social backgrounds. The women talked about their everyday life experiences in Germany and about how they approached the different challenges. Faced with uncertainty, they confronted the new situation by first retrenching themselves into their pre-war lives. By observing and judging what happened in their new environment, some women began to consider a path forward for their new life in Germany.

Abstract in another language

Die durch den Krieg ausgelöste Krise und verschlechterte Sicherheitslage in Syrien, hatte 2011 einen massiven Flüchtlingsstrom zur Folge. Diese Arbeit thematisiert die Erfahrungen der syrischen Frauen, die in diesem Zusammenhang nach Deutschland geflohen sind, um Schutz zu suchen und Asyl zu beantragen. Nach einer traumatischen Flucht aus ihrem Heimatland, mussten die Frauen sich in einer ihnen unbekannten Umgebung zurechtfinden und sich an eine unterschiedliche Kultur mit den einhergehenden Gesetzten und Gepflogenheiten anpassen. Die Arbeit setzt sich mit der Frage auseinander, welche Effekte diese Umsiedlung auf das Leben der Frauen hatte und wie sich diese an die veränderten Gegebenheiten angepasst haben.
