Migration and Diversity Research Centre

Migration and Diversity Centre

The Migration and Diversity Research Centre (MDC) was initiated in 2007 at the VU in form of a cross-disciplinary platform for professors, PhD candidates, and researchers to share and exchange research ideas and outcomes. The faculties of Law, Social Sciences and Humanities collaborate through this platform and organise events nationally and internationally.

The MDC aims to contribute to new or more refined social, legal and historical theory, as well as to practical insights into the opportunities and challenges posed by diversity. We compile our projects, blogs and activities on this website and you can read our latest blogs focusing on migration, diversity and decolonization. Please, reach us via email ( if you would like to contribute a blog focusing on these themes   We welcome academics, scholars, and those interested in the fields of integration and migration to attend the centre‚Äôs activities, which can be found advertised in our agenda or via the monthly newsletter.

The MDC is governed by a 5 member board and coordinators. There are 78 members who are professors, PhD candidates, or researchers and additionally around 400 people from all over the world who subscribe to our monthly newsletter. Everyone involved with the MDC come from a multitude of disciplines, principally the faculties of Law, Humanities, and Social Sciences; the MDC are keen to expand to include further faculties.

We organise feedback forums with researchers wishing to discuss their ideas or work in a cross-disciplinary environment. To become an MDC presenter, send us an email with a short abstract, and we will get in touch with you to make arrangements and to pick a date. Together we will find a discussant who will give critical feedback and facilitate discussion amongst other attendees.
