expert pool

Our expert pool is a list of University of Gothenburg researchers whose research relates to migration and integration in a broad sense. Under each theme, you will find a list of researchers, with contact details and a few key words describing their field of research in more detail. The purpose of the expert pool is to enable better communication and dissemination of information between researchers and external actors (e.g. journalists, local government authorities, and civil society).
