Research in Ethnicity and Migration

Ethnic and Migration Studies is a strong interdisciplinary research field at Linköping University. In focus lie causes of, conditions for and consequences of international migration, racism, discrimination and intergration policy. A central issue is economic, political, social and cultural processes in both the 'old' and 'new' homeland that enables or impedes migration and inclusion in society. It is also linked to globalisation and labour market and welfare changes.

Today the focus on 'ethnicity' lies more than previously on power relations and distribution between majority society and minorities and migrant groups. So an important question is how 'ethnicity' is constructed and what consequences various constructions have, in the labour market, the housing market, in education and the judicial system at large. Central is also to examine struggles for inclusion and equality and how ethnicity can be understood in relation to other dimensions of inequality such as class and gender.

The research field mobilizes a wide range of scientific methods and disciplines in the humanities, social and behavioural sciences.

At Linköping University research in this area is pursued at different institutes, departments and units.  REMESO - the Institute for Research on Migration, Ethnicity and Society, is the strongest hub at LiU, but the field is growing and have bearing for most disciplines within social science and humanistic research.  To the right is a list of LiU-researchers in the field and below a list of importants environments as well as a calendar of events as well as some current LiU - news from the field.
