Research interests

The research programme of Hans Siebers focuses on ethno-migrant inequality as well as on configurations of diversity in work settings and in education. In most European countries, migrants face serious problems to secure participation in work settings an din education on an equal basis with non-migrants. Aspects from their migrant status and the ethnicisation imposed on them mingle in hampering their access to jobs, fair assessments, promotion chances, development opportunities, wages etc. Simultaneously, their entrance into work teams and classes produces various configurations of diversity that work out differently, both from the business case and justice case point of view and in terms of inclusion. His research aims at identifying the factors that produce this ethno-migrant inequality as well as configurations of diversity at work and in class. Is it racism? Is it nationalism? Where do organisational factors and management come in?



Hans Siebers is the director of the master programme Management of Cultural Diversity, Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences, and teaches on management of cultural diversity, management and organization, labour relations, ethnicity and diversity.
