Studying at Cambridge

CAMMIGRES members include researchers based in the schools of Humanities and Social Sciences; Arts and Humanities; Clinical Medicine; Physical Sciences; Technology, spanning over 20 University faculties, departments and centres.

There are two sub-groups of CAMMIGRES members, each serving slightly different, although entirely mutually supportive communities and objectives, and together forming the CAMMIGRES membership - there is much overlap between their activities and interests:

1. The CAMMIGRES Network includes established academic researchers at different stages of their research careers (e.g. Professors, Readers, University Lecturers, Research Associates).

The Network 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.

2. The CAMMIGRES Forum includes postgraduate members and early career researchers (e.g. University of Cambridge M.Sc. and Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers, Research Assistants).

The Forum, which is steered by a postgraduate organising committee, aims to raise the profile of migration research at Cambridge, and to increase opportunities for outreach and public engagement, as well as scholarly activity and networking, by hosting a series of reading groups, talks, film screenings, conferences and workshops.

3. Associates of CAMMIGRES (the Cambridge Migration Research Network) are interested colleagues from institutions and organisations beyond the University of Cambridge as well as non-affiliated colleagues who have demonstrated interest in the broad area of migration.  Contact details and interests of Associates are included on the CAMMIGRES website and in the mailing list.  Associateship membership means invitation to selected events and conferences organised by CAMMIGRES members of the University of Cambridge and notice of other relevant activities.  

Please note that views expressed by any member of CAMMIGRES or the organisers are not attributable to any other member of the network.
