Successful collaboration begins with a shared language, hence the need for a glossary. This joint effort of contributors from several teams ensures, on the one hand, terminological and conceptual coherence across not only our theoretical approaches, but also the qualitative case studies and quantitative research conducted in OPPORTUNITIES. On the other hand, our glossary facilitates communication between the academic side of the project and the fieldwork conducted by NGOs, uniting our teams working from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Mauritania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania and Senegal.

Empowering refugees and migrants, thus fighting epistemic injustice, is a central objective of the OPPORTUNITIES project. Measures include strengthening migrants’ and refugees’ agency and supporting self-representation through storytelling with art-based methods and perspective changes in Cross Talks. These activities are framed by the level telling field approach which defines premises, principles, and procedures for fair play in migration discourses.
