International migration and ethnic relations are fundamental issues in Nordic societies today. They currently bring challenges to politics, policymaking and academic research, which need to be met with a multidisciplinary and international framework. Migration in the Nordic countries vary with regard to the number of immigrants and where they come from, how integration policies are designed and implemented and public attitudes towards new citizens. 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.
Nordic Migration Research (NMR) aims to cover Nordic academics and doctoral students working in this field. To strengthen the quality of research and training NMR will increase networking of individual researchers, departments and institutes in different disciplines by organizing conferences, seminars, research training courses, publications, supervising, peer reviewing, and supporting mobility as well as comparative and multidisciplinary research designs.
