Transnationalism, Nation and Rights

Brown globe

We examine the formation of resilient and diverse societies

Our research cluster focuses on citizenship and human rights, international migration, multi-culturalism, indigenous rights and re-configuring the nation, refugees, social and economic integration of migrants and the second generation.

This research cluster closely aligns with the work of the Centre for Migration Studies but also with research affiliated to and related to the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Essex. Our research covers topics such as the successful incorporation of migrants, the formation of resilient diverse societies, and the understanding and interpretation of rights in our daily lives.
