GLIMER - Governance and the Local Integration of Migrants and Europe’s Refugees
glimer_home

THE GLIMER TEAM

The GLIMER consortium consists of partners from Italy and Cyprus (two landing points for many refugees as they first enter the EU) and the UK and Sweden (two countries seen as final destinations for recent arrivals), and the cases focus on new arrivals in the areas in and around Cosenza, Nicosia, Glasgow and Malmo respectively.

Transnational cooperation is particularly important so that best practice can be shared both across these cities and other municipalities.

PROJECT TEAM

The GLIMER consortium is more than a sum of its parts and is made up of leading researchers trained in Law, Political Science, Social Work, Sociology and Social Policy. Each team possesses a demonstrable expertise across the humanities and social sciences, including in the support of a number of interdisciplinary research centers at participating institutions.

The current ‘migration crisis’ presents openings and well as challenges.

The aim of GLIMER is to generate research that will help European cities and regions facilitate the long term inclusion of displaced people in a way that remakes local spaces.
