IMI project Theorizing the Evolution of European Migration Systems (THEMIS) selected for funding by the NORFACE Research Programme on Migration in Europe
- 18 June 2009
The IMI is pleased to announce that its project Theorizing the Evolution of European Migration Systems (THEMIS) has been selected for funding by the NORFACE Research Programme on Migration in Europe - Social, Economic, Cultural and Policy Dynamics
By investigating migration dynamics and migrants' agency in their continuous interplay with structural conditions in origin and destination contexts, this project aims to achieve an improved understanding of the heterogeneity of the evolution of migration systems across migrant groups, localities and time.
The IMI will be collaborating with 3 European partner institutions to bring together a multidisciplinary team for this four-year project: the Department of Sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam; Faculdade de Letras, Universidade de Lisboa, and the International Peace Institute (PRIO), Oslo.
NORFACE - New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Co-operation in Europe - is a partnership between fourteen research councils to increase co-operation in research and research policy in Europe.
