The ways that mainstream parties have engaged with issues of immigration and integration are characterised by contradiction and tensions. The political mainstream faces several challenges therefore with regards to framing, positioning, and electoral competition. Although conventional wisdom suggests that this relationship emerged after the populist...

Pancreatic cancer is primarily considered to be a metastatic disease with a low 5-year survival rate. We aimed to detect if plasma-isolated anthocyanins and their metabolites (PAMs) modulate pancreatic cancer cells migration and to describe molecular targets of PAMs in this process. Plasma metabolites were isolated by solid-phase extraction before...

Eritrean refugees are being trafficked and enslaved in Libya, where they are tortured to force relatives to pay a ransom for their release. Labelled with a digital code, they are moved along in the possession of the traffickers through a series of ‘black holes’, in which their access to digital technologies and connectivity is highly controlled. Th...

Methodological nationalism as a critique of container-based and nation-state-focused theory and empirical research is currently strongly anchored within migration studies, where it was initially developed. While this has led to extensive literature and critical engagement with methodological nationalism, and ways to circumvent the national trap in...

The Greek island of Lesvos is a holiday destination that became the main entry point for forced migrants to Europe during 2015 and 2016. These circumstances of disruptive societal change are used as the basis for developing a causal and dynamic model that creates public value in institutional voids. The clash between a holiday location and a humani...

Spheroids and organoids are increasingly popular three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models. Spheroid models are more physiologically relevant to a tumor compared to two-dimensional (2D) cultures and organoids are a simplified version of an organ with similar composition. Spheroids are often only formed from a single cell type which does not repres...

Studies on migration have largely neglected the emergence of migrant chiefs in Africa's urban centers. Chieftaincy analysis has also not been adequately extended to those who are migrants and how they are selected and installed as chiefs in the cities. Through deliberately-provoked conversations with Dagomba migrant chiefs and their elders, the pap...

Place-based or territorially confined approaches in forced migration studies are well-suited to investigating how displaced people live and interact with others in certain localities and navigate their way through governance regimes of aid and asylum. They may, however, fail to capture the inherent multi-sitedness of many displaced people’s everyda...

European migration studies have been criticised for having certain epistemological and theoretical underpinnings that reproduce hegemonic structures, especially the ‘national order of things’ and colonial legacies.

Migration is a critical topic on the international agenda. According to recent UN figures worldwide there are 281 million international migrants (McAuliffe & Tri-andafyllidou, 2021) and around 750 million internal migrants (Swing, 2019). Regardless of the strategic importance of this phenomenon-which comprises between one-seventh and one-eighth of...
