Mission Statement

Center for Diversity, Democracy and Inclusion in Education in Migration Societies

The Center for Diversity, Democracy and Inclusion in Education in Migration Societies (ZBI) has been created as a research infrastructure and platform for interdisciplinary exchange on the topic area heterogeneity, educational participation, and migration.

The ZBI enhances the visibility of research on inclusion and exclusion processes in increasingly diverse societies. One of our main objectives is to help reducing educational disadvantage. With this goal in mind, we examine, among other issues, the manifold and interrelated aspects of diversity, integration, and participation in educational pathways, processes, media, and systems.

The center initiates, supports, and interlinks research and practical projects on educational integration. It develops best practice and implementation strategies. We aim to network, on a regional as well as on a national and international level, with various civic, political, cultural, and economic parties who participate in shaping this socio-political field.
