The NOVAMI group held a two-day workshop on norms and values in migration studies.

The aim was to create an interdisciplinary understanding of value research and to explore issues in the field of migration and integration pertaining to the three themes. The workshop was hosted in spirit by the Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM) at Malmö University and took place online.
