The research into international migration and ethnic relations at Linköping University is about causes and consequences of migration, racism, discrimination and integration. Focus is on the economic, political, social and cultural factors that influence and are influenced by migration.
In our research the researchers study the term ethnicity as changeable. Researchers study what people understand by the term ethnicity and what consequences it has, for example in working life, on the property market, in the education and legal systems, in the media and in daily life.
Linköping University is home to REMESO, the Institute for Research on Migration, Ethnicity and Society, which gathers researchers from several different research environments to study migration and ethnicity from several different perspectives. The researchers in the area use a number of scientific methods within the humanities and social and behavioural research.
