The Cambridge Migration Research Network

Studying at Cambridge


Research activities

The CAMMIGRES network unites a diverse range of migration research projects, programmes and activities, spanning multiple University departments and academic fields. Some highlights are documented here, as well as summaries of research outputs and developments stemming from the CAMMIGRES Small Grants scheme.


Launched in January 2014, by Co-Founders Professors Madeleine Arnot and Loraine Gelsthorpe, and Research Associate Dr Jessica Wheeler, the Cambridge Migration Research Network, funded by the Vice-Chancellor’s Endowment Fund, brings together a superb tract of migration research, spanning 23 University of Cambridge faculties, departments and centres, including researchers in anthropology, archaeology, history, politics, economics and land economy, geography, sociology, gender studies, psychology, health and education studies, management studies, linguistics, theology, criminology and law.

CAMMIGRES researchers' interests orient around the impacts of past and present migration in relation to human evolution and development, social, legal, and economic policy, governance, professional knowledge, institutional practice and social relations.
