The Cambridge Migration Research Network

Studying at Cambridge


About the network

Network Aims

The aim of the network is to develop a multi-faceted, rolling programme of externally funded migration research projects. The network is intended to complement the University’s developing public policy initiative, broadening the debate and generating knowledge able to inform policy and professional governance issues relating to migration.

The Network in it's first phase, is primarily focused on academic collaboration and the development of new inter-disciplinary research projects, to support and enhance migration research at the University, and ultimately to support the future establishment of a Cambridge Centre for Migration Research. To support this process the Network founders have launched the CAMMIGRES small grants scheme.

Research Themes

There are a number of areas of active inter-disciplinary project development, including:

  • Youth and migration
  • Communities, religion and migration
  • Health, education and migration
  • European policy and politics
  • Borders, oceans and migration
  • Professional Knowledge and migration
