Proposal to create a research centre for PhD and Postdoc researchers, focusing on ethnographic studies of migration and mobility in Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific. The Centre will be the core component of a specially created five year, then permanent, Research Professorship at Aarhus University. Projects at the Centre will be generated with external funding for two areas, crucial for exploring the human dimensions of globalisation and regionalisation, and which grow out of the recent research of the coordinating DIrector (Adrian Favell): on migration and mobility at the East-West, Balkan and Mediterranean borders of Europe, in comparative regional perspective with Latin American-US migration and the Asia Pacific; and on flows and mobility of highly skilled, creative professionals between hub cities in Europe and East Asia. PhD and Postdoc researchers, who will be recruited internationally, will receive comprehensive methods training in quantitative and qualitative techniques, as well as specialist training as ethnographers. The IRG will enable the return of an established European researcher who has spent 7 years as an Associate Professor of Sociology at UCLA.
