Migration Working Group

Migration is a multidisciplinary research field that has been strongly represented in the academic research of all departments of the EUI and has formed a specific focus at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies. For several years, EUI faculty, fellows and researchers working on projects related to migration and the integration of immigrants have met in the Migration Working Group (MWG) to discuss their research.

The MWG provides an informal and congenial atmosphere for interdisciplinary debate. Sociology, political science, social geography, anthropology, history, economics, law, and demography are among the key disciplines represented in the MWG.
