New research project

Civil Society Organizations and the Challenges of Migration and Diversity: Agents of Change (ZOMiDi)

How do civil society organizations respond to the challenges of migration and diversity in their work with sexual minorities and people with disabilities?

A new collaborative research group, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will focus on this question. MPI MMG research group leader, Professor Karen Schönwälder, Professor Hella von Unger from the Ludwig-Maximillians University of Munich and Dr. Serhat Karakayali from the Humboldt University in Berlin will run the project together.

The team will take up its work in February 2018 at the MPI MMG.
