Global Migration Centre


The Global Migration Centre (GMC) based at the Graduate Institute of international and Development Studies offers a unique interface between academia and the international community. The GMC conducts advanced research, policy-relevant expertise and training on the multifaceted causes and consequences of global migration.

The major distinctive features and assets of the GMC are its focus on the transnational dimensions of migration and its interdisciplinary orientation. By doing so the GMC seeks to fully grasp the complexities of mobility in a globalized world. To this end, it combines inputs from lawyers, political scientists, economists, historians, anthropologists and sociologists.

While its primary function is to lead policy and academic research, the GMC also aims at influencing the direction of future practices and norms through dissemination and training. It regularly organises summer courses, international conferences, lectures and panel discussions.
