exclusion/inclusion, into a single research agenda. The national welfare state, its regulation of working life and its management of migration, asylum and a multiethnic citizenry should still be a privileged social framework for research. But incremental economic internationalisation and new forms of governance demand multi-level studies on the articulation of the national with the supra- national, the local and the global. This is the overall rationale for REMESO:s three pronged research programme on Labour Market Restructuring, Migration and Social Inclusion. Its first sub- programme will, based on a complex approach to the political economy of migration, focus on societal restructuring and processes shaping social divisions and contemporary forms of inclusion/exclusion. The second sub- programme targets normative aspects of citizenship. It elucidates how institutions and legal regulations, positive action or discriminatory ex- clusion in working life, in education and social security advance or undermine individual or collective welfare for M&EM and it examines deliberations con- nected with the reformulation of discourses, norms and regulations. The third sub- programme explores, with a perspective on post-national governance, strategies for growth and multiethnic inclusion contingent on the EU’s agendas for growth, employment and social policy. Meanings of social inclusion and its antonym social exclusion (se the critical review of Chamberlayne 1997) will be explored across the programme, as instruments for analysing consequences of economic change, labour market restructuring and changing welfare regimes and as ambiguous ersatz terms bottling up established normative discourses on citizenship and social welfare (Schierup 2006b). This concern is essential for the programme’s focus on the articulation of regimes, norms and strategies within current transformations. Each sub- programme includes several projects. Some focus chiefly on global or macro-regional (EU) issues. Sweden provides the main case material for others. But an international comparative perspective is essential across the programme, as is understanding national cases in articulation with processes of supra-/transnationalisation and localisation/regionalisation . Comparative foci are mainly European but involve transatlantic and global perspectives as well. Each project is carried out by an interdisciplinary team directed by a senior scholar. Empirical approaches based on a complementarity of quantitative and qualitative methods are developed throughout the programme.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
