Transforming Solidarities. Practices and Infrastructures in Societies of Migration


“Transforming Solidarities. Practices and Infrastructures in Societies of Migration” is an interdisciplinary consortium of scholars who are conceptualising and approaching Berlin as a ›laboratory‹ of migration society – that is, a society that is fundamentally and irrevocably transformed by migration. Through case studies that examine the interconnected areas of labour, housing and health we explore how solidarity is negotiated and we investigate practices and infrastructures that condition or limit solidarity.

We argue that labour, housing and health are not only sites of societal reproduction in crisis – so often diagnosed today – but also key arenas for the political, social and material negotiation of solidarity relations. In response to new challenges of social cohesion, as conditioned by digitalisation, migration and locally articulated global influences, the project also aims to generate new modes of collaborative and transdisciplinary knowledge production.
