Organisation profile

The Research Group on Immigration, Mixedness and Social Cohesion
(INMIX), is a group officially recognized as a Consolidated Research
Group (2017SGR-466) by the Agency for Management of University and
Research Grants (AGAUR) of the Catalan Government—a competitive
recognition that aims to support top-notch research groups in all fields of
knowledge.
The INMIX is an interdisciplinary research group with experienced
researchers in various disciplines of the social sciences (social and cultural
anthropology, geography, sociology, psychology, demography…), dedicated
to the study of international migrations, inter-ethnic relations, and
processes of sociocultural integration of immigrants and their
descendants, and with a particular interest in the processes of
‘mixedness’, i.e., mixed (bi-national, bicultural, transnational) couples /
families and their descendants; exploring social attitudes, life experiences,
processes of cultural hybridism, multiple identities, sociocultural capital,
and experiences of discrimination.
The group combines quantitative and qualitative methodologies and
different analytical perspectives, with a strong ethnographic and
comparative component, and an emphasis on critical and intersectional
analysis.
The INMIX has an extensive academic international network, has
conducted numerous funded research projects, and is very committed to
the dissemination and transfer of knowledge from academia to the
political and civic spheres
