The research is closely connected to other legal fields – particularly Human Rights and Administrative Law. A key focus is on vulnerable groups and the interconnections between welfare, discrimination, and migration.

The research group actively contributes to the UiB priority areas Global Challenges connected to health, migration, and social inequity.
