Welcome to our resource site on interdisciplinarity in migration research!

These pages present a selection of resources and reflections about the application of interdisciplinary research, mainly focusing on legal analysis and ethnography.

The site was initiated by researchers at the University of Bergen and Chr. Michelsen Institute in connection with the TemPro project, and has funding from Research Council of Norway and UiB strategic area Global Challenges.

Our site is intended as a collaborative, living resource, and content will be added regularly.
