Focus 2010

Migration leads to increasing diversity in many countries all over the world. Sometimes this results in challenges of established institutions as well as cultural practices of modern societies. Current migrant populations are more heterogeneous than ever before: migrants and their descendants have not only different religious, cultural and ethnic roots, but they also differ with regard to their citizenship status, as well as their professional and economic backgrounds. At the same time, governments in receiving societies frequently react to this phenomenon with integration schemes that implicitly address a non-existent homogeneous “migrant population”. On the other hand, there are examples where diversity and cultural pluralism are seen as strength and advantage.

Ph.D. students dealing with these broad issues in different regions of the world are invited to apply for a scholarship. We encourage the following topics, but will also consider other approaches:

  • Diversity and political order
  • Migration and cultural, ethnic and religious diversity
  • Integration policies
  • Cultural policy and the management of diversity
  • Concepts and categories in migration and integration debates

Innovative approaches both in terms of subject matter and methodology are highly encouraged.
