PEOPLE WITH A MIGRATION BACKGROUND IN ORGANIZATIONS

In the context of the Chair Diversity and Social Innovations, HEC-Liège and UHasselt and more specifically the research centrum EGiD and SEIN collaborate with three sponsoring organisations, Mobistar, B-Holding and GDF-Suez Electrabel, to conduct research on diversity and diversity management. Several subjects are recovered.

This doctoral project investigates the multi-ethnic occupational community of railway teams in Infrabel. Developing the notions of occupational community, work conditions and multi-ethnic workgroup and conducting an ethnography study, will allow us to understand, on one hand, how the intersection of occupational norms and ethnic identities, as competing bases of identification, affect the functioning of the multi-ethnic occupational community and, on the other hand, how this functioning socially and professionally affect ethnic minority employees.
