You can find a good impression of the department’s research projects on the page of ISC, our Research Lab on Mobility, Infrastructures, Sustainability and Commons.
Staff research is linked to the overall program Mobilities, Belonging and Beliefs: Confronting Global Inequalities and Insecurities (MOBB). We take up mobility in the broadest sense of the word as a conditioning and disciplining, but also productive and enabling process. Mobility is about migration, transnational life and material exchange on a global scale. It is also about forced up-rootedness, growing inequality, overheating and unsustainable social contracts. The focus on mobility reveals the resilience and inventiveness of people confronted with protracted crisis and insecurity.
