II), and established fora for research cooperation and dissemination. The aim of the application to FAS is to further consolidate this LiU-NIWL partnership through the build-up of a Centre of Excellence for Research on Migration, Economy and Society (REMESO). CWW’s interdisciplinary perspective will be extended with additional expertise covering political economy, business economics, work organisation, regional development, gender studies and labour law. The centre’s activities will extend the knowledge base for sustainable models on multiethnic inclusion in Sweden and in the enlarged European Union; and the centre will be involved in global fora for research and development. 2 See further en The proposed working programme of REMESO aims at the following activities: continued long term development of theoretical frameworks and comparative empirical research based on an interdisciplinary research agenda; building quantitative and qualitative data bases pertaining to the centre’s research themes and projects; developing a Research School on Migration, Economy and Society engaging the centre’s academic staff; maintaining a national and international dissemination programme aimed at reaching stakeholders among the academic community, public institutions, the social partners, NGOs/INGOs, and networks in civil society; providing a platform for visiting scholars representing the frontline of international research. The centre’s research agenda on Labour Market Restructuring, Migration and Social Inclusion in Europe will focus on three closely interdependent sub-thematic areas: international migration, changing welfare regimes and the political economy of labour market segmentation ethnic divisions, social exclusion/inclusion and the reconstitution of normative and legal frameworks post-national strategies for growth, inclusion and diversity. The main scientific responsible for the development and management of the centre is Carl-Ulrik Schierup, professor at Linköping University and professor at the National Institute for Working Life. 2.

Strategies Rationale and General Outline Global economic- technological change, recast welfare and worklife regimes, post-national modes of governance and expressions of culture and identity have brought with them new urgent dilemmas in European communities. They are centred on issues of migration, ‘race’, citizen- ship, human rights and the social exclusion/inclusion of migrants and new ethnic minorities (M&EM). A ‘New Deal’ for Europe and its immigrants is critical (Papademetriou 2006). As in the case of the old American Dilemma (Myrdal 1944) a contemporary European Dilemma (Schierup, Hansen and Castles 2006) embodies moral-political concerns entangled with conflicting corporeal economic interests and changing worklife regimes, albeit the specific configuration and contents of the dilemma have changed.

    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.
