Migration and Mobilities Study Group of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (MMG-PLUS) joins IMISCOE

05 August 2018

MMG is a collective that brings together several thematic groups of scholars within migration and mobility studies at the University of Salzburg.

Our premises and themes

The international movement of people - as well as that of artefacts and ideas, and the phenomena that result from these movements - affects more than just specific, small groups of the population or discrete parts of our society. Instead, we consider migratory movements and their consequences to be part and parcel of our everyday lives and social structures. Of central importance here is our interest in understanding how international migration and mobilities, and the consequences they have, mutually influence each other, (re)producing inequalities and generating new dynamics. We conduct research on a wide range of themes, including: 

1. International labour migration and the mobility of (highy) skilled and less-skilled workers
2. Refugees and forced migration
3. Integration
4. Care, global social policy, social change and migration
5. Global migration history
6. Mobility and tourism studies
7. Populism, racism and nationalism
8. Anti-Semitism and Holocaust studies
9. Human rights and citizenship
10. Gender, sexualities and diversity
11. Transnational social movement and organisational studies
12. Religion, culture, literature, communications and mobilities
13. Education, youth and migration

These themes are also taught in our interdisciplinary study emphasis programme “Migration Studies” (since 2012), enabling participating students to deepen their knowledge in selected areas of migration studies. They can acquire a certificate of their specialisation in Migration Studies”.

Disciplinary and methodological diversity

MMG is truly diverse in terms of the disciplines: they range from sociology, history, political science, geography and education to literature, law, theology, and media and communication studies. Our diversity is also reflected in our methodological approaches, utilising qualitative and quantitative methods, and mixed methods designs.

We look forward to forging new collaborations and strengthening our existing partnerships in IMISCOE!

Professor Kyoko Shinozaki, Ph.D.
