Migration and Integration Research

The Research Platform "Migration and Integration Research" aimed to create structured interaction and communication between the relevant researchers in the University and to encourage interdisciplinary research.

The Research Platform served as an institution to share and to bridge the various languages of the different research methodologies. It was also supposed to help to develop a common theoretical and empirical view on migration processes beyond the traditional and disciplinary boundaries to realise truly interdisciplinary research.

The research platform "Migration and Integration Research" was supported by the Department of Geography and Regional Research of the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy, the Department of Legal Philosophy, Law of Religion and Culture and the Department of Constitutional and Administrative Law of the Faculty of Law and the Department of Sociology of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

The Faculty of Social Sciences was involved in the platform through the main research area, "Migration, citizenship and belonging".

The research platform expired on 31st September 2014.
