nccr – on the move. National Center of Competence in Research – The Migration-Mobility Nexus

The nccr – on the move is the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) for migration and mobility studies. It aims to enhance the understanding of contemporary phenomena related to migration and mobility in Switzerland and beyond. Connecting disciplines, the NCCR brings together research from the social sciences, economics and law.

Managed at the University of Neuchâtel, the network comprises eleven research projects at eight universities in Switzerland: The Universities of Basel, Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, as well as the ETH Zurich, the Graduate Institute Geneva, the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland, and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

The research projects provide an interdisciplinary perspective on migration and mobility and are structured around three thematic research modules:

(I) Migration-Mobility Governance and Crisis Narratives Across Time and Space: Regional, National, and International Perspectives, (II) Socio-Economic Inequality in Times of Crises, and (III) Evolving Regimes of (Im)Mobility in Times of Crisis.
