The Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU) is one of the leading research and educational centres in Slovenia. The diverse research areas can be summed up in the study of cultural, social, and natural phenomena, processes, and practices. The Slovenian Migration Institute (SMI) is one of eighteen independent but coordinated and interconnected institutes of ZRC SAZU. The researchers of SMI are focused on emigration and immigration issues, analyses of return migration, ethnicity, migration and integration processes and policies, cultural-artistic production of migrants and different methodological and theoretical research approaches to migration. Their disciplines span from the humanities to social sciences – historiography, literary history, art history, ethnology, anthropology, geography, cultural studies, political studies and sociology. Researchers are involved in international projects and strive to compare their own research with related Slovenian and foreign research methods and results. SMI issues the international scientific journal Dve domovini/Two Homelands and the monograph series Migracije (Migrations). Researchers cooperate with various educational institutions and are therefore actively included in education process. The researchers of SMI have, in collaboration with University of Nova Gorica and other partner institutions from Europe and Africa, developed an international MA study in Migration and Intercultural Relations.

The European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research (EC) is a UN-affiliated intergovernmental organisation that was established in Vienna in 1974 and is concerned with all aspects of social welfare policy and research. The EC provides expertise in the fields of welfare and social policy development, in particular in areas where multi- or interdisciplinary approaches, integrated policies and inter-sectoral action are called for. Research activities within the EC are organised into two larger units: (1) Work and Welfare Programme; and (2) Health and Care Programme. One of the core strengths of the EC is the bridging of knowledge and policy evidence between the “Europe of 56” (UNEurope) and in particular EU countries and (potential) candidate countries and the countries of the Eastern partnership. The bridging function is based on three main pillars: 1) Comparative social policy and welfare research; 2) Knowledge transfer and public forum function; and 3) Policy consultancy; as well as on the premise of close collaboration and participation with the national governments of European countries, the European Union and other relevant stakeholders at the European and national levels.
