Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. While migrants try to find their way in a new and sometimes hostile environment, host populations also have to adapt to migrants and the new religious and cultural diversity they bring with them. Migrants and host populations face the challenge of acceptance and adaptation in spite of initial resistance, possible social exclusion and explicit political rejection by part of the host population. We discuss social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, the integration of immigrants and their children, and reactions of the host society.


This course introduces students to social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, the integration of immigrants and their children, and reactions of the host society. Throughout, we use an interdisciplinary and analytical approach, drawing on theories and empirical research from sociology, psychology, political science, demography and economics, among others. The two-week course covers a broad range of topics related to migration, integration and ethnic relations, such as reasons for international migration, modes of immigrant adaptation and acculturation, identity, religion, stereotyping, discrimination, inequality, radical right wing voting and inter-ethnic contacts.
