As political scientist I am doing teaching and research at the University of Applied Labour Studies in Mannheim and Schwerin, Germany since 2001. This university has been founded by the German Federal Employment Agency to provide academic training for future experts in vocational and labour market counselling and integration.
My subjects in teaching are:
Focus of my research:
In autumn 2016 we started an ERASMUS+-funded research project to develop academic curricula for the training of future vocational and career counsellors for refugees (www.CMinaR.EU). Before taking up the coordination of this project of six European countries my professional activities have all taken place in Germany. That is why up to now nearly all of my publications have been written in German language only. You´ll find a list of those by using the button „Publikationen“. A text published in spring 2017 can be obtained in English though. You´ll find my article "Specific career counselling for refugees - the key to tapping a significant potential of skilled workers" by the link www.Kohnpage.de/Text2017b.pdf .
