MPI-MMG in Dialogue "Can advocacy organisations be intersectional?"

The panel will discuss the results of the ZOMiDi research project, which investigated how and why civil society organizations change in response to migration and societal diversity. Do organizations that focus on differences respond in similar ways to the challenges linked with migration? What ‘best practices’ for organizational change can they offer?

The results of the ZOMiDi project are summarized in the forthcoming new book “Organisationaler Wandel durch Migration? Zur Diversität in der Zivilgesellschaft [Organizational Change through Migration? On Diversity in Civil Society]“, edited by Hella von Unger, Helen Baykara-Krumme, Serhat Karakayali and Karen Schönwälder.

You can find the book (forthcoming) here:
