The Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE) has joined IMISCOE, the largest research network in Europe on international migration, integration and social cohesion. MACIMIDE’s membership application was accepted unanimously by the IMISCOE Board of Directors at a meeting in Rotterdam on Friday 28 March 2014.

Through the breadth and quality of the research conducted at MACIMIDE, the Centre will contribute to IMISCOE’s objectives at promoting cutting-edge migration research. Focusing on the crosscutting issues between migration, citizenship and development, MACIMIDE will reinforce the interdisciplinary and multi-dimensional character of immigration research within IMISCOE, among others via the research groups in areas such as migration integration, transnationalism, remittances and development, and multilevel governance of immigrant and immigration policies.

Through the affiliation to IMISCOE, MACIMIDE expects to further develop its international research agenda in the area of migration, citizenship, transnationalism and development and to develop joint research initiatives and grant applications with colleagues within the Research Groups. MACIMIDE expects through IMISCOE to strengthen its international profile and to reach out to the wider research and policy-making community in the area of migration and social cohesion.

Within IMISCOE, Maarten Vink, Co-Director of MACIMIDE, will coordinate the Standing Committee on Migration, Citizenship and Political Participation (MIGCITPOL), together with Marco Martiniello and Jean-Michel Lafleur of the University of Liège.
