Vetenskapsrådets forskarskola i migration och integration

REMESO GRADUATE SCHOOL

Forskarskolan erbjuder kurser för svenska och internationella doktorander (PhD) som berör en mängd olika perspektiv på internationell migration och integration.

Forskarskolan drivs av två starka forskningsmiljöer: Institutet för forskning om migration, etnicitet och samhälle (REMESO) vid Linköpings universitet (LiU), och Institutionen för sociologi och arbetsvetenskap (SOCAV) vid Göteborgs universitet (GU). Forskarskolan har också förmånen att samarbeta nära med Centrum för global migration (CGM), Juridiska institutionen samt Institutionen för globala studier vid GU.

Syftet med forskarskolan är att ge doktorander möjlighet att delta i avancerad undervisning och nätverksbyggande samt att verka för att skapa en unik intellektuell miljö för doktorander som skriver sina avhandlingar inom området migration och integration.

Skolan drar fördel av expertis vid både Linköpings universitet och Göteborgs universitet och erbjuder ett brett kursutbud med såväl generella som specialiserade kurser. Kurserna behandlar teorier om etnicitet, nationalism, geopolitik och rasism; intersektionella perspektiv; teorier om internationell migration; mixad metod inom migrationsforskning; migration och internationell rätt; medborgarskap, civilsamhället och välfärdsstaten; bostadssegregation; politisk ekonomi; klimat; och arbetsmarknadsintegration.

Forskarskolan förfogar således över ett brett spektrum av empiriska forskningsfält, teoretiska och metodologiska ansatser och specialistkunskaper. Kurserna närmar sig internationell migration och integration från såväl samtida som historiska perspektiv och de betonar migrationens och integrationens mångdimensionella karaktär. Allt som allt bygger skolans kurser på vår breda erfarenhet av inter- och mångdisciplinära förhållningssätt, mixade, kvalitativa, kvantitativa och deltagande metoder, samt tillgång till internationella forskningsnätverk och samarbeten inom det samhällsvetenskapliga och humanistiska forskarsamhället.

Attributing Responsibility for Transnational Violations of Migrant Rights

In this course, we track violations of migrant rights, such in cases of pushbacks, refoulement or dismal detention conditions, emerging in the context of such multiparty, transnational cooperation. We focus on forms of cooperation involving the EU, its Member States or both. For Northern states, it leverages power differentials between the North and the South while shifting legal responsibility for rights violation onto Southern partners. Attributing international legal responsibility for violations of migrant rights in a multiparty, transnational context is difficult, and the resulting responsibility gap might be an incentive for migration control by proxy.

This course has three main objectives. First, we shall examine how North-South cooperation increases the risk of violating migrant rights. We will focus on EU cooperation with four countries – Niger, Serbia, Tunisia and Turkey. Second, we shall explore how recent international legal debates on the expansion of responsibility attribution may be leveraged to address legal loopholes and to craft arguments that engage the legal responsibility of states in the North. Third, we will discuss the political logic of responsibility shirking through multiparty, transnational cooperation, and of the countermoves by academic researchers.

Climate Change and Migration: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

This course addresses the complex relationship between migration and climate change and provides interdisciplinary analytical tools for understanding the multicausality of migration. Being based in the social scientific field, it will also involve climate science perspectives. The course discusses various methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative, to study the complexities of social, political and ecological drivers behind migration, their interactions and variations across regions and scales of governance.

Drawing on the most recent theoretical advances and a broad variety of empirical studies from different world regions, the course develops a critical engagement with different frameworks for exploring the climate migration nexus. The course also dwells on issues of climate and mobility justice from a North-South perspective and explores the state of the current global policy development in the field. Important international actors such as the UN and the EU will be analysed and problematized in terms of the ability to provide viable support and protection for climate migrants.

Theories of Ethnicity and Nationalism:
Historical and Contemporary Debates

Course Description

The course examines key ideas and concepts underlying both historical and contemporary thinking and debates on ethnicity and nationalism. This includes questions of national and ethnic identification and mobilization as well as theories on multiculturalism. Drawing on contemporary, historical and comparative examples, the course engages with different understandings of ethnic solidarities, nationhood and citizenship.

Students also explore more recent debates on supranationalism, cosmopolitanism, populism and the post- and transnational. Much emphasis is put on the ways in which both historical and contemporary notions of nation and ethnicity need to be re-thought and re-historicized when confronted with issues of migration, empire, coloniality, gender, class and caste. Questions of methodology are also highlighted, addressing methodological nationalism, methodological Eurocentrism and other forms of tacit methodological assumptions that have influenced research. In this way, the course aims to stimulate and enhance students’ ability to carry out empirical research.

Housing Segregation and the Challenge of Building Sustainable Migration Policies

Course Description

The implementation of efficient migration policies lies at the core of the transformation into sustainable societies on a global scale. Yet, there is currently little agreement on a “best practice” and consequently notable disparities in migration policy across European nation-states, both at the national and local level of government, resulting in a variety of policy structures and approaches to refugee reception and housing.

The course explores state-of-the-art research on integration, segregation, and housing, with an empirical focus on the Swedish context in combination with international examples. Highlighting the current restrictive trend in migration and settlement policy, the course lays a special focus on the impact of temporality, both in terms of residence status and refugee housing. Central to the course is the discussion about the potential paradoxical outcomes inherent in when different institutional strategies are seen in the light of various sustainability aims, such as economic inclusion, family formation, gender equality, and educational possibilities (among others).
