Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig)

Migration is one of the most pressing and complex issues of the 21st century. The Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig) brings together scholars of
Göttingen Campus from six different faculties, plus the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (MPI-MMG). Together they study the complex challenges of migration on a global scale under very different thematic and regional foci, that by engaging in interdisciplinary collaboration and by pooling together diverse methodological approaches. CeMig strengthens research and teaching in the area of Migration Studies in addition to establishing innovative forms of knowledge transfer.

The "Urban Lab: Ways to the colonial-critical city" (Stadtlabor) will provide space for exchange and the collaborative exploration and development of paths to a colonial-critical city of Göttingen over the next 12 months. The project aims to gather perspectives, network knowledge and shape commemoration. In addition to the reappraisal of local colonial history, the City Lab also wants to make anti-colonial resistance and colonial continuities to the present more visible and invite all Göttingen residents to get involved and participate.

In the course of building up an open archive, all Göttingen residents are called upon to contribute objects, documents or other contemporary testimonies.
