Aims

IMISCOE unites researchers through conferences, workshops and numerous interdisciplinary projects made possible through external funding. Although each project’s objectives are unique and the researchers behind them offer their own field-focused perspectives, the Network consistently delivers rich results and compelling analytical data. Research output by IMISCOE members is in a constant state of cross-fertilisation. Experts external to the Network also weigh in on IMISCOE research and reap from its results.

Thematic issues

In principle IMISCOE covers all topics that can be included in the domain of international migration, integration and social cohesion in Europe. In practice, researchers have organised themselves in Research Groups that focus on specific subthemes.
