After more than 20 years the Foundation for Population, Migration and Environment (PME) terminates its activities. The foundation's main purpose was described as follows:
"The Foundation for Population, Migration and Environment (PME) is an inde-pendent institution which wants to promote the understanding of the phenomena concerning migration. The foundation would like to contribute to the solution of respective problems by supporting research about causes, effects and signifi-cance of migration, as well as well as inputs concerning the differentiation and objectification of the non-scientific migration discourse."
We would like to sincerely thank all institutions, individuals and in particular the researchers who cooperated with PME during all these years. They have made many contributions which are relevant to the topic of migration and which we are proud of (see portrait of the PME foundation - in German).
Even though PME bids farewell, the topic "migration" and the necessity for research and educational information remain valid, as our final publication shows (Werner Haug, Georg Kreis, Hrsg., Zukunft der Migration – Reflexion über Wissenschaft und Politik, Zürich 2017).
We wish all the best for the future.
