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 their 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. Another dimension of this project explores the role of diasporas in the process of accommodating cultural diversity and building an integrated society. Finally, the project will identify and contrast protection and promotion of indigenous peoples and religious minorities in urban contexts at the UN.
