Claudia Diehl is a professor of Microsociology at the University of Konstanz and co-speaker of the Cluster of Excellence The Politics of Inequality. Currently she is working on integration processes among new immigrants in Europe and on xenophobia and ethnic discrimination. She received her PhD from the University of Mannheim in 2001 and was employed at the Federal Institute for Population Research and a professor at the University of Göttingen before my appointment in Konstanz. She spent several years abroad, most recently as a distinguished visiting fellow at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in 2016 and as the DAAD Hannah-Arendt visiting professor at the Munk School of Foreign Affairs and Public Policy in Toronto in 2019/2020. In 2021, she have been appointed to The Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany and I am also a member of the Advisory Board for Family Affairs. Her publications include a special issue of Ethnicities on early integration patterns of recent migrants in four European countries, an edited volume on ethnic educational inequality in Germany, and numerous journal articles on migration, integration, and ethnic discrimination.
