1. Overall rationale and executive summary Issues of international migration and ethnic relations need to be moved to the front stage of social research on economic globalisation, on the restructuring of labour markets and welfare regimes and on changing frameworks of citizenship. Mainstream Swedish and European social science research in economy, labour market, welfare and public policy studies still insufficiently reflects that Sweden and the European Union have become multi- ethnic societies increasingly shaped by global migration. There is still an inadequate focus on ethnic segmentation of labour markets and the implications of new migratory movements for economic and social change and for the future of the welfare state (Cross and Moore 2002). On the other hand specialised Swedish research in the field of international migration and ethnic relations (IMER) has not developed adequate theoretically grounded analyses concerning changing economic and institutional contingencies of ethnic diversity and equal opportunities in contemporary welfare states, in the European Union, or in the global theatre of our current ‘great transformation’ (Schierup 2006a). Merging these two, often separated, perspectives has been a central objective for the FAS sponsored long term research programme on Citizenship, Work and Welfare in Multiethnic Europe (CWW). 1 The 1 For a detailed outline of this FAS-programme, see 12001.pdf . programme has been developed by LiU in partnership with the National Institute for Working Life (NIWL) 2 in Norrköping, 2000-2006, involving scholars in sociology, political science, history, social anthropology, political economy and education (Sect. II). The institutional setting of Linköping Uni- versity’s (LiU) twin-city campuses of Linköping- Norrköping (Sect. III) has proved a fruitful setting for innovative approaches and interdisciplinary research. With CWW as the nodal point LiU and NIWL have developed a fruitful complementary partnership in the context of a number of long-term research projects (Sect.

    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.
