Erasmus Mundus European Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations (EMMIR) 2011 Master Scholarships

Erasmus Mundus European Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations (EMMIR) 2011 Master Scholarships

EMMIR is the European Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations. It is the first African-European Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Migration Studies. The first cohort will set out to study in September 2011.

EMMIR is jointly run by three African and four European universities, facilitated by a wider network of partners. Various associate organsiations on the regional, national and international level provide significant assistance for student internships and graduate’s employment. The quality of the programme is constantly evaluated by an international board of experts.

EMMIR is a unique study programme focusing on migration through an intercultural approach. It provides profound theoretical skills in migration studies combined with field work in Europe and Africa. It is designed as a multidisciplinary programme that addresses important contemporary issues in an emerging field of study.


In the 21st century, migration processes – multidirectional in their spatial as well as social and cultural structure – increasingly contribute to the shaping of societies. Consequently, the presence of migrants adds emphasis to intercultural relations and intercultural communication, which are of key concern for social cohesion.

Arguably, migration and globalisation may be considered twin processes. They contest concepts of the nation state, including territoriality and citizenship, and direct attention to questions of social justice and human rights, peace and conflict. They also lead to the emergence e.g. of new concepts of identity and transnational social spaces. Answers to policy questions linked to phenomena as diverse as voluntary and forced migration, internal displacement and transcontinental flows, movement of unskilled labourers and brain drainers need differentiated investigation and evaluation as well as complex negotiation.

Online application

Newcastle Business School Studentships 2010 in Dietary Change, Northumbria University, UK

Newcastle Business School Studentships 2010 in Dietary Change, Northumbria University, UK

Project Title
Dietary change – The role of meat free choice(s) in addressing food security, consumer behaviour, marketing barriers and enablers. (Our Ref: RS10-NBS01)
Summary of Research Project
Food 2030, the UK Government’s strategic response to developing a sustainable food supply chain, suggests a need to reduce our consumption of meat and its impact on our health and the environment. To date, accounting for the environmental impact of foodstuffs has primarily seen the advancement and streamlining of supply-side life-cycle analysis techniques to measure embedded carbon emissions of products. A notable outcome of much of this research in the food industry has been the realisation that meat products are significantly carbon-inefficient when compared to, for example, grain or vegetable products (e.g. Williams et al., 2006). However, in addition to this, ‘meat alternative’ products may also be associated with other win-win opportunities across the health and sustainability agenda, such as lower fat content, reduced salt, reduced water use or a smaller land use footprint.
Such findings have led to recommendations for reductions in the meat content of diets (e.g. IPCC, 2008). Although wholesale changes in consumer diets or consumption habits is an unlikely achievable goal in the short term, it is possible that improving demand for meat-substituting products could provide a means for better achievement of sustainability and quality of life targets. Despite growing media coverage of these issues consumer uptake of meat free choices within the UK remains limited. There is a clear need to understand the consumer within this emerging debate and the issues that drive market demand and /or create disengagement.
This research, co-sponsored by Premier Foods Ltd., seeks to investigate the factors that influence market demand for meat substitutes and meat free products. Segments of consumers that share common behavioural characteristics will be identified to provide a better understanding individual consumer preferences. Specific research questions that may be addressed in the project include:
What understanding do UK consumers have of current and emerging the issues of food security – what’s hot and what’s not?
What are the barriers and enabling factors that influence behavioural change in the meat free sector?
How can consumers be segmented in terms of both attitude and behaviour?
What voluntary, policy, and other alternative mechanisms could be developed or structured to influence behavioural change in this sector.
The outcomes will be linked with those from other similar on-going projects being undertaken by the co-sponsor including work at Imperial College and Liverpool University that are examining the impact of dietary change on health and environment.
Full project description
Details of research training to be undertaken as part of this project
The student will be expected to undertake a tailored programme of training by attending subject specific training delivered within the School and generic skills development training delivered by the Graduate School. Students will also attend compulsory training sessions related to their milestones. They will be expected to reflect upon their training requirements by using their training needs plan.
