Neues Forschungsprojekt "IMPDIV" am MPI-MMG

The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (MPI MMG) is hosting a new research project “Post-imperial diversities – majority-minority relations in the transition from empires to nation-states (IMPDIV)” (2018-2020). Funded in the framework of the ERA.Net RUS program, the project advances international collaboration with the University of Eastern Finland and the National Research University Higher School of Economics, Saint Petersburg. Its overall aim is to study the constitutional politics of ethnic, linguistic, and religious diversity in the transition from empires to post-imperial arrangements following the Russian empire and the Soviet Union.

At MPI-MMG, the project will be led by Matthias Koenig, Max Planck Fellow and professor of sociology at the University of Göttingen.
