Welcome to ICEMiC

No one is illegal! Stop Deporations - Photo by Davide PeroGlobalisation and other social forces are transforming certain aspects of the cultural and political landscape and generating new forms and patterns of inequality, but our individual and collective experience is also shaped by more traditional lines of social division and exclusion. 

The Identities, Citizenship, Equalities and Migration Centre (ICEMiC) brings together researchers who are concerned both with continuity and change; the global and the local; macro level structural forces and micro level everyday practices and experience. 

Contributing to a range of substantive fields of study (including economic life, migration, gender, class, wealth, ethnicity, postcolonial subjectivity, families, sexuality, nationalism, religion, health and illness, education, tourism), our research documents, explores and theorises:

  • The ways in which identities are produced, negotiated, expressed, claimed or repudiated, and the consequences for individuals and groups in terms of their ability to access social rights and protections
  • The production and reproduction of inequalities, and the moral and political ideas (including ideas of citizenship and human rights) that frame, guide, naturalise, deny or contest them

ICEMiC's research informs public and policy debate as well as helping to shape the contemporary sociologies of identities, citizenship, equalities and migration.

Based in the School of Sociology and Social Policy, ICEMiC also includes members from external organisations and from other schools within The University of Nottingham and collaborates with other research centres and institutions nationally and internationally. It is one of seven research centres that contribute to The University of Nottingham's Integrating Global Society Priority Group.

This Priority Group brings together leading scholars in the University from across the social science disciplines to provide high-impact, agenda-setting and policy-relevant research on the dynamics and effects of globalisation on contemporary society. ICEMiC staff contribute to research under the Priority Group's sub-theme 'Social Dynamics and Uncertainty', that covers key social issues such as migration and population displacement, asylum, poverty and inequality, aid, post-conflict studies, human rights, democracy and governance, and well-being.

Kyunghee Kook: North Koreans' migration to China is highly complex, more so than when it is depicted simply as 'human-trafficking' and/or 'modern slavery' in anti-trafficking discourse

Inka Stock: Migrants in Morocco often attempt to cross the Mediterranean only after years of exploitation and exclusion. Their vulnerability is a product of EU policy and its preoccupation with 'transit migration'.
