About us

The Group for Migration and Ethnicity Research is a group of researchers who aim at creating and disseminating scholarly-grounded knowledge on human relations on the crossroads of migration and ethnicity in the post-Soviet space. Of special interest for us is the process of integration of international migrants in Russia. Among the main questions raised in our research: what is the place international migrants take up in Russian society and how does the Russian society change as a result of intensive migration flows from the CIS countries. Our activities are not limited with scholarly work and along with it we are engaged in expertize for governmental and non-governmental bodies as well as social activism and university teaching. We are based at the Russian Presidential Academy for National Economy and Public Administration within the Center for Regional and Urban Studies. We are open for cooperation!
