Global Migration Centre


The Global Migration Centre (GMC) conducts advanced research, provides policy-oriented expertise and publications as well as training on the multifaceted causes and consequences of global migration. While our primary function is to lead policy and academic research, we also regularly organise events, expert meetings and conferences. Through these various activities, we offer a unique interface between academia, the international community and the civil society. The distinctive features and assets of the GMC owe much to our focus on the transnational dimensions of migration and its interdisciplinary orientation in order to fully grasp the complexities of mobility in a globalised world.
