This week the SFM at the University of Neuchâtel, together with its partners, was awarded a giant 17.2 million project to study the character of contemporary immigration patterns – so-called ‘new’ migration.
18 projects illuminate the nature of contemporary migration from various different angles. Apart from coming up with its title (hat tip to Tim Cresswell), I spent several weeks in late 2012 and early 2013 rewriting the grant proposal for the decisive second step of the selection. Credit should also go to the University who unwaveringly supported the project from the beginning, and of course all the project partners who contributed in their own ways.
