Research projects

We recognise the importance of ethnicity and migration to the study of contemporary societies and polities, and to prospects for social justice and social cohesion.

Our research projects promotes the study of ethnicity in three broad areas:

  • ethnicity, politics and citizenship
  • ethnicity and inequalities
  • migration and transnational networks.

Research impact

The following Centre research projects and programmes have had particular influence on public debates and policies.

Muslim Participation in Contemporary Governance

This large project explored how British government strategies and policies recognise and respond to Muslim religious difference and enable Muslim participation in governance.

Ethnicity Centre co-leading global project on Religion and Politics

What can Europe learn from other parts of the world about governing religious diversity? The GREASE project is finding out. Our consortium brings together researchers and eminent scholars from Europe, South & Southeast Asia, Asia Pacific and the MENA region.
