The Research Environment Migration, Ethnicity and Society is a meeting place for researchers who want to develop a multilevel approach to the understanding of migration, ethnicity and society. Its projects relate individual experience, local community development and civil society to the restructuring of the labour market. 

These research and policy concerns are viewed through the lens of ongoing debates over the changing frameworks of citizenship and welfare in contemporary society.

Thus the research environment’s research agenda includes the policy and practices of governments, public agencies, non-governmental organisations, associations, the media, firms and trade unions, in terms of their consequences for labour migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and ethnic minorities. 

At the same time, these concerns are contextualised by national state transformations, the wider forces of globalisation and regional integration. The research also includes projects linking migration and ethnicity to post-colonial historical developments, education and health issues.

The projects are organized in five thematic research streams:

  • Citizenship and Ethnic Relations: Social, Cultural and Historical Perspectives 
  • Globalisation and the Reconstitution of Normative and Legal Frameworks
  • Migration, Public Service and Health
  • Migration Welfare and the Political Economy of Labour Market Segmentation
  • Post-National Strategies for Development/Growth, Inclusion and Diversity
The research environment is part of REMESO (Institute for Research on Migration, Ethnicity and Society)
