The Research Unit for the History of Migrant and Refugee Movements functions as an area of interdisciplinary research, production and transmission of knowledge, as well as a sphere of exchange among those who are interested in global population movements and their impact on citizenship in the past and in the present. Being part of the Research Center for Modern History, the Unit will contribute in the integration of the history of population movements, diaspora and citizenship in the overall study of the past in modern and contemporary years. With the study of the history of the migrant, refugee and diasporic phenomena, with the localization and use of relevant archives (documents, oral testimonies, audiovisual material etc.) and with the diffusion of knowledge on moving populations and their relations with local and sedentary ones, the Unit attempts to contribute to a better understanding of the complexity of the causes, the characteristics and the consequences of population movements. Moreover, the Unit attempts, by operating as a mediator between the scientific community and the broader audience, to contribute to a better understanding of the transformation of political communities and collective representations that emanate from them.
