Welcome to CoHaB

All over the world, stable concepts of home and belonging have, for a variety of reasons, become the exception rather than the rule. This has led to dramatic cultural, social and political changes and challenges, but also opportunities. The study of diaspora and migration has therefore evolved into a burgeoning field of research with an urgent practical relevance.

The Marie Curie Initial Training Network CoHaB - Diasporic Constructions of Home and Belonging unites world-leading experts in this field in the conviction that interdisciplinary training as well as international and intersectoral co-operation is key to any productive study of diasporas. Consequently, CoHaB is committed to training a new generation of scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds, but with similar interests in the field of diaspora studies by enabling them to join forces and develop their research projects on a shared platform. To this end, CoHaB offers 12 Early Stage - or doctoral - and 3 Experienced - or postdoctoral - research fellowships on various aspects of diaspora in relation to home and belonging.
