The Swedish Research Council’s Graduate School in Migration and Integration

The aim of this graduate school is to provide PhD students with advanced teaching, research training and networking opportunities. It aspires to create a unique intellectual milieu for PhD students who write their dissertations on migration and integration.

About the Graduate School

Our Graduate School in Migration and Integration is run by two main partners: the Institute for Research on Migration, Ethnicity and Society (REMESO) at Linköping University (LiU) and the Department of Sociology and Work Science (SOCAV) at the University of Gothenburg (UGOT). At UGOT the school also benefits from close cooperation with the Centre on Global Migration (CGM), the Department of Law and the School of Global Studies.

By drawing upon the expertise at both Linköping University and the University of Gothenburg, the graduate school offers several courses, some of a comprehensive nature, others more specialised. Our programme includes courses on ethnicity, nationalism and racism; intersectional perspectives; mixed methods in migration research; theories of international migration; climate change; migration and law, citizenship, civil society and the welfare state; housing segregation; political economy; and migration and labour market integration.

The school incorporates a wide range of research directions, specializations and theoretical and methodological approaches and attends to international migration and integration from contemporary as well as historical perspectives. Our course programme also benefits from a broad experience with inter- and multidisciplinary approaches, mixed, qualitative, quantitative, and participatory methods.
