Beskrivning av projektet
What happens when people originating from conflict zones settle in a different country? Does it entail a danger of propagating conflict to their host society? Can we learn from cases in which diaspora communities coexist peacefully? How could policy makers respond adequately to these situations? This project proposes to answer these questions thanks to five multi-sited ethnographic field studies focusing on different diaspora groups and conducted in six European countries (Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Germany, France and Belgium). Focusing on these groups' views and practices, the research intends to generate novel information valuable to policy makers and associative actors alike, on ethnic relations and the related issues of conflict and peace.
