Platform Migration

A strategic platform for migration and integration research at Linnaeus University will contribute to collaboration and increased knowledge exchange. Within the platform, researchers collaborate with professionals and organisations in the region.

A platform for increased knowledge

In Sweden and other welfare states, there is a lively discussion on the conditions for migration and integration. Questions concerning refugee flows, people's origin, or cultural differences are often perceived as controversial. Public policies may challenge fundamental perceptions of identity and belonging. Who has access to a national community without being questioned? Why are “the others” perceived as just being conditionally included? What does it take for cultures, religions, and traditions to coexist without open or hidden discrimination of people belonging to certain population categories? Through the platform’s activities, we want to contribute to an increased knowledge exchange on issues related to migration and integration.
