The Centre for Multiethnic Research is a cross-disciplinary forum for the study of the cultural issues, social phenomena, and processes of change related to life’s ethnic dimensions. This field of study also covers ethnic relationships and processes in multicultural societies, as well as the effects of international migration within cultures. The activities of the Centre focus on research, postgraduate education, documentation of research results, and public information. The Centre’s activities give emphasis primarily to the cultural dimensions of ethnicity. Language, cultural and religious issues are a background, and the historical dimension is of central importance.
