The final report for my research project “MinMig – Accommodating Linguistic, Religious and Cultural Diversity Through a Comparative Analysis of Minorities’ and Migrants’ Claims”, funded by the Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano, has now been published in English, German and Italian.
MinMig consisted in a comparative analysis of the claims made by “old” national and “new” migrant minorities, focusing on the European Region Tyrol – South Tyrol – Trentino as a case study. The project aimed to shed light on the question whether “new” minorities strive for similar protection mechanisms to those in place for “old” minorities, and which measures designed for national minorities might be beneficially extended to migrant groups. Conducting diversity-related research in times of a global pandemic was a particularly challenging task, I’m therefore especially happy about the very interesting results that MinMig presented us with. Happy reading!
