This Doctoral Training Unit (DTU) consists of an interdisciplinary consortium of 16 researchers active in Economics and Sociology research related to the scientific issues of migration, inequality and labour markets.

(2) the INtegrative research unit on Social and INdividual DEvelopment (INSIDE), acting as a Research Unit in sociology in the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education (FLSHASE) at the University of Luxembourg (UL) and
(3) the Luxembourg Insitute for Socio-Economic Research (LISER), acting as public research insitute under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Higher Ediucation and Research of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
