A Word from Our Director
As time rolls on in our digital work lives, it is once again time to send out some news from our little corner of the internet/world. At MIM and Malmö University we are still working mostly from home and connecting through Zoom meetings - waiting impatiently for restrictions to lift so that we can once again meet students, research participants, and each other in person. Meanwhile, we have received great news that make us even more excited about what is to come, which we report on below. We also have several new publications by MIM staff and, as always, our online seminars are open to the public. Until we can once again have a coffee or drink at conferences accross the world, let's keep in touch digitally. We hope to see you soon!

The City of Malmö renews our Guest Professorship for another ten years 
We are very happy to announce that we recently recieved confirmation from the City of Malmö that our guest professorship will be financed for another ten years. Malmö University and MIM have, since 2000, hosted 32 prominent researchers as part of the guest professorship and it has generated a constant and dynamic exchange of knowledge, enhancing MIM’s academic strength while also reinforcing our international network. We are therefore very glad that the City of Malmö wishes to continue collaborating with MIM and that we can look forward to another ten years of academic and social exchange with leading scholars from the migration field.
The MIM Migration Seminar
On account of the pandemic circumstances our Thursday seminars are being held digitally also this semester. Next to present are our own Haodong Qi (8 April) on Understanding Migration Motives: Methodology, Sensitivity, and Heterogeneity and Erica Righard (15 April) on Migrant integration, EU Cohesion Policy and local urban development strategies in the

Seminars of the Collaborative Future-Making Platform 640x640transp
The Collaborative Future Making Platform at MAU held a digital workshop on March 25 that asked How can we imagine a future for integration? The workshop took the future as a starting point to critically consider how we use ‘integration’ as a concept within policy processes at various levels. To access the recorded discussion between policy practitioners, civil society advocates, and academics on the practical challenges when considering ‘integration’, click on the button below. There you will also find other previous seminars in the CFM Platform series. 640x640transp

Seminars on Precision Health and Everyday Democracy 
The PHED Commission - Precision Health and Everyday Democracy, involving several MIM researchers, organizes a series of seminars during the 2021 spring semester featuring practitioners and researchers addressing the wider question of how to achieve good healthcare for all in an unequal world. The April 20 seminar titled The Challenges and Opportunities for Global Health Coverage; and, Refugee and Migrant Health in the European region, involving World Health Organization's Dr. Gundo Weiler and Robert Yates of Chatham House, will surely be of interest to many migration scholars out there. Follow the link below for more information and access to the seminars.
