Being the centre of research

The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre Governance of Migration and Diversity (GMD) is a multi- and interdisciplinary research centre with a focus on the governance of migration and diversity. As LDE Centre GMD, we combine research from TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and Built Environment, the Leiden Interdisciplinary Migration Seminars (LIMS), the Leiden initiative on Citizenship Migration and Global Transformations, PRIMUS, and the Erasmus Migration and Diversity Institute (EMDI).

We organize working conferences, research symposia and invite visiting scholars with prominent positions in the field to elevate the expertise within the LDE-GMD community. Through our Research Fellowships, Research Associateships, Contactraad, and Early Career Network, we warmly invite others to become part of our centre and boost a collaborative research agenda.

Joint research initiatives

A core activity of the LDE Centre is that we coordinate our strengths in funding schemes on migration and diversity. This means for instance coordinating joint efforts in direction of future EU Framework Programs (Horizon Europe), ERA and in relation to the Dutch Science Foundation. The research network of IMISCOE and its Migration Research Hub are strongly related.
