About us

The research group The Politics of Inclusion & Exclusion (INEX) was created in 2008 with the aim of studying issues related to the political regulations of diversity in the fields of migration/integration, democratic reform and innovation, religious governance, anti-discrimination, and gender politics at the European, national and local level. 

As a research group INEX is located at the Department of Political Science at the University of Vienna. It builds upon existing expertise present at the department and is situated within the broader context of Migration and Citizenship Studies which is one of the main research focuses of the Faculty of Social Sciences.
