Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM) at Malmö University (Sweden) part of the EuMIGS Network launched in September 2020 the Migration Society 2.0 Lectures- Community and Conflict in the Era of Diversity.
The aim of the lecture series is to enhance knowledge and understanding of how diversity is normalized in the minds, actions and behaviors of people and organizations. What kind of mindset and strategy of co-existence is diversity? How is it produced and communicated through public imagery and narratives? And, which new patterns of community and conflict does it engender? The list of confirmed speakers consists of internationally renowned scholars who are prominent in the literature on the diversity turn in migration studies and/or because of their innovative research on diversity.
The seminars are held in English and online every Thursday from 14:15-16. If you would like to participate, please send an email to
