Nordic International Migration and Ethnic Relations Network (NMR)

The NMR network aims to provide comprehensive knowledge for academics, policy makers and publics researchers in the field of nordic international migration and ethnic relations.

Nordic countries vary in migrant numbers, countries of origin, years of residence, integration policies and public attitudes. However, the common Nordic ground and some demographical and historical differences make research collaboration rewarding.

Increased migration due to reasons originating both outside and within the Nordic countries and Europe will influence these societies a great deal in the near future, bringing challenges to politics, policy making and academic research.

These challenges must be met with a multidisciplinary and international framework. NMR will contribute to this, uniting researchers within a variety of disciplines in the social and economic sciences as well as in the humanities.
