Dr. Dita Vogel works as senior researcher at the University of Bremen in the Unit for Intercultural Education since 2012.  She is leading researcher in the project "Adressing Demand in Anti-trafficking Efforts and Policies" (DemandAT), funded in the 7th research framework of the European Union. In addition, her research focusses on the question how schools and society deal with undocumented migrants and migration control. She teaches intercultural education for future teachers and other students of education. 

Vogel has published numerous studies and articles on political, economic and social issues concerning migration in a comparative perspective, particularly on migration control, irregular migration, trafficking in human beings, German migration policy and on civic participation of immigrants.
She holds a diploma in economics (University of Cologne 1989) and published her doctoral thesis on the fiscal impact of immigration in 1996. Previously, she held research and teaching positions at the University of Bremen (1989-1997), the University of Oldenburg (1998-2007) and the Hamburg Institute of Economics (2007-2010) and worked independently in the framework of Network Migration in Europe (2011-2013).
