Migration and Diversity

Migration and diversity issues are closely interconnected, but the extent to which life is transnational and the different forms this takes in the case of individual migrants and societies shaped by migration are not yet fully understood. This ZOiS research cluster considers the simultaneity and multidimensionalism of personal identities, networks, practices, and political engagements. It focuses, on the one hand, on migrants in Germany with an East European background and, on the other hand, migratory processes and their effects on migrants within Eastern Europe. The internal diversity of so-called migrant groups, the varying conditions and dynamics of spaces shaped by migration, and non-linear integration and identification processes over longer periods of time are critical issues in this regard.
