Academy Housewarming – Integration in an era of superdiversity
October 13, 2015
Professor Jenny Phillimore, Director of the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) and Professor of Migration and Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham, will give a talk at the inauguration of the Academy’s new offices at 33 Finsbury Square on Wednesday, November 4.
In her talk she will outline the enormous changes, currently being amplified by the migration “crisis” in Europe, which have fuelled the emergence of new migration and associated superdiversity. She will argue that the key question is not if integration should occur but at whom integration policy is aimed.
Professor Phillimore’s research has focused on migrant integration, access to welfare in superdiverse areas, the role of migrant and refugee community organisations in migrant adaptation, migrant access and outcomes in higher education and community research, having published widely in these topics.
