Named for the late Ary Zolberg, Professor of Politics at the New
School for Social Research and pioneer in the fields of immigration
politics, studies of ethnicity, and practices of integration, the center
constitutes a reinvigoration of the International Center for Migration,
Ethnicity and Citizenship founded by Ary in the 1990s.
The Zolberg Institute aims to produce high-quality research, bring
together scholars from many disciplines, engage with contentious
political and cultural questions of mobility and immobility, justice and
inequality, belonging and exclusion, and open a space for scholarly,
activist and artistic voices on the issue of the political, economic,
and cultural consequences of migration. Most importantly, the Institute
provides a space to think about how migrants and migration are changing
the political landscape – how they open up new political possibilities,
wittingly or unwittingly. Using migration as a lens the Institute studies
various types of transformation, shifting from a focus on nation-states
and their borders to new forms of global knowledge and action, activated
by and for migrants.
