EMDI

Erasmus Migration & Diversity Institute (EMDI)

Migration and migration-related issues raise theoretical questions across disciplines. Scholars from various departments of the Erasmus University Rotterdam have decided to work together in order to address cross-disciplinary questions raised by migration and diversity. They launch the Erasmus Migration and Diversity Institute (EMDI), which has the main objective to deepen cross-disciplinary collaboration in research on migration and diversity and to position EUR in the rapidly developing international field of migration research.

EMDI was developed by scholars from various departments, including:

  • Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB)
  • Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC)
  • International Institute of Social Studies (ISS)
  • Erasmus MC (EMC)
  • Erasmus School of Law (ESL)

The coordination of the institute will be in the hands of a group of scholars from these faculties, including Prof.dr Kristin Henrard (ESL), Prof.dr. Susanne Janssen (ESHCC), Prof.dr. Des Gasper (ISS) and Dr. Peter Scholten (ESSB).
