The programme has aimed at exploring changing condi- tions for citizenship and social welfare contingent on the transformation of worklife and labour market regimes and the emergence of new ethnic divisions of labour. This has been related to overall processes of European inte- gration and the impact of differential experience and conditions in the member states of the Union, in the cen- tral and Eastern European countries that became mem- bers of the Union in 2004 and in candidate countries and bordering regions of the EU. The aim has been to ana- lyse the complex interplay between work, culture and ethnicity marking the Third Industrial Revolution, set in the context of a holistic perspective on economic change and social transformation. At the centre of the research are the structural and institutional conditions for the de- velopment of an active democratic citizenship. CWW’s integrated research design was structured along the lines of three main subthematic programmes: - Citizenship, migration and the welfare state in the European Union - Ethnic conflicts, citizenship and social reconstruction in post-communist Europe - Modes of citizenship in cities and regions A successful development of CWW, now running towards its conclusion, has proved the value of LiU’s and Campus Norrköping’s setting for research and develop- ment on the thematic issues of the proposed Centre of Excellence on Economy, Migration and Society (REMESO) and its research programme. The CWW programme can demonstrate a sizeable publication re- cord of good academic standard (APPENDIX to Section II), with a number of publications measuring the standard of international excellence. Several innovative research areas concerned with migration, ethnicity and restructur- ing worklife and welfare regimes have been opened up. Research affiliated with the programme enjoys interna- tional repute, and a number of international scholars have been engaged in the work of the programme 7 and 6 . 7 CWW have established a wide net of collaborative partners both nationally as well as internationally and several of those have been engaged as leturers and as visting professors. Among those Professor within its framework conferences and workshops have been organized that break new paths at the frontline of international research. A considerable competence in the thematic research field of CWW has also been developed among younger scholars affiliated with the programme. By the autumn of 2006, five post-graduate students in ethnic studies, as- sociated with CWW, will have finished their theses and PhD degrees with a focus on the thematic fields of the programme, while a further three PhD students will graduate 2008. 8 Moreover, four scholars who had newly passed their Ph.D.s when affiliated to the programme in 2000 will have reached the status of associate profes- sors (Swedish: docent ) by the time of the closing of the second funding period of the programme in 2007.Hence

    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.
