Migration and societal change offers a platform for researchers at Utrecht University to work on migration topics and related societal transformations. It stimulates the combination of disciplinary perspectives and the close cooperation with societal partners to develop new scientific insights that are required to address timely societal challenges related to migration. The Master Thesis Awared aims to recognise and promote excellence in student research as well as awareness in the field of migration.
