MIM was established in January 2007 with the goal of strengthening Malmö University’s migration research profile. Further to this, MIM was also envisaged as a platform to expand Malmö University’s international networks and build bridges between the university and non-academic actors. MIM consists of a core of senior and junior researchers and a large international network of affiliated researchers. MIM regularly hosts prominent professors in IMER from around the world.
The research conducted at MIM is multidisciplinary and is pursued in collaboration with international partners. It is funded either nationally or by the EU and can be classified under the following four themes:
- Patterns of mobility and demography
- Early reception and integration

The Migration Seminar
This is a multidisciplinary forum for researchers from all faculties at Malmö University with an interest in migration, integration, diversity and related issues. Master’s students interested in the research field are welcome to participate in the Migration Seminar.
The purpose of the seminar is to facilitate an exchange of ideas and knowledge, and to stimulate a pluralism of perspectives, theories and methods. It offers a wide variety of research-related activities ranging from paper and project presentations to specially-invited guests and panel debates. It also hosts the seminar series of the Willy Brandt Guest Professor. As the seminar has a distinctly international profile, both with respect to attendance and topics, most sessions are held in English.
Seminars on Thursdays
Usually the Migration seminars are held Thursdays at 14.15-16.00 at MIM’s seminar room on the 9th floor of Niagara, Nordenskiöldsgatan 1, but due to the Covid-19 situation the seminars are held online via zoom.

Migration Society 2.0 – Community and Conflict in the Era of Diversity
In the course of a few decades, Sweden has evolved into one of the most diverse countries in the world; in terms of foreign-born residents and their offspring, in terms of the variety of ethnic groups and countries of origin, in terms of non-white “visible minorities”, and most other imaginable measures. The normalization of diversity in various levels and spheres of society calls into question the established vocabulary and imagery of immigrant societies – immigrants and natives, foreigners and citizens, integration and assimilation, and so on. While a lot has been said and written (academically and otherwise) about the new patterns of diversity, less is known about how the norm of diversity is construed and co-produced by its own generation of subjects and agents.
The aim of the “Migration Society 2.0” lecture series is to enhance knowledge and understanding of how diversity is normalized in the minds, actions and behaviours 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 (below) 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.

Guest Professorship in Memory of Willy Brandt
The Guest Professorship within the field of International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) in Memory of Willy Brandt is a donation to Malmö University financed by the City of Malmö when the University was inaugurated.
International migration and ethnic relations
The aim of the professorship is to strengthen research at Malmö University within the field of IMER. As IMER has a strong international network, the City of Malmö sought, via the guest professorship, to strengthen contacts with international experts in order to ensure that they would become an integral part of research and teaching. An international guest professorship creates a constant and dynamic exchange of knowledge and enhances the centre’s academic strength. The donation also funds a research fellow and a PhD position.
Who was Willy Brandt?
Willy Brandt was West Germany’s Chancellor between 1969-1974. He was forced to seek refuge in Sweden during the Second World War and developed strong ties with the country. In order to emphasise the importance and status of the scientific investment, the City of Malmö obtained the family’s permission to name a guest professorship after him.
