The research programme Migration, Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Relations is part of The European Research Centre on Migration and Ethnic Relations (ERCOMER). 

ERCOMER actively encourages, supports and promotes comparative research in the fields of international migration and ethnic relations within a European context

There are three interrelated research themes:

  1. migration
  2. immigrants in host societies
  3. host societies' responses to immigrants, ethnic minorities.
    The research topics include acculturation, integration, multiculturalism, ethnic exclusionism, ethnic conflict, racism, and nationalism.

MSc in Migration, Ethnic Relations and Multiculturalism (MERM)

Why have some immigrants who came to Europe to improve their circumstances rejected their host culture and become radicalised, while others are doing their best to fit in to their new environment? Do some groups of immigrants tend to separate themselves off more than others? If so, why? And why did the Soviet Union break up into ethnic republics? (General discription of the program)
