The “Urbanized Indigenous Migrants and (new) Religious Minorities: Rights and Resilience” (U-I-MIR) project focuses on two minorities-within-(new)-minorities, namely urbanized indigenous migrants and those religious minorities stemming from migration. The overall goal of this project is to analyze whether these two minorities-within-(new)-minorities are in the position to exercise or claim their (human, minority, and/or indigenous) rights and build their resilience in the new (to them) urban contexts. It thus explores whether (and, if so, why) they are subject to inequality, discrimination practices, hate speech, et al. (incl., islamophobia and antisemitism), and what this implies for the exercise of their rights and their (potential) resilience, especially in (post-)pandemic times. Another dimension of this project explores the role of Diasporas in the process of accommodating cultural diversity and building an integrated society.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
