Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM) is a research centre with a multidisciplinary profile and a strong international presence. Within the centre and its extensive network, researchers develop, explore and exchange knowledge of international migration and ethnic diversity.
MIM was established in 2007 with the goal of strengthening Malmö University’s migration research profile. Further to this, MIM was also envisaged as a platform to expand the University’s international networks and build bridges between the University and non-academic actors. MIM consists of a core of senior and junior researchers, and a large international network of affiliated researchers.
