Welcome to the Centre for the Study of Migration

The Centre for the Study of Migration aims to facilitate, promote and develop interdisciplinary work on migration at Queen Mary. It hosts a programme of events, seminars, workshops and conferences through the academic year that explores migration from diverse disciplinary perspectives. The Centre is committed to acting as a focal point in London for research related to migration and to offer opportunities to scholars of migration within and beyond Queen Mary to share and develop their work through participation in the Centre's events and publications. It welcomes expressions of interest in collaboration from scholars working on any aspect of migration and from organizations working in the field of migration and diaspora. It seeks to further develop both links with the local Tower Hamlets area and with migration-related organizations in other parts of the UK and abroad. The Centre also provides facilities for researchers from overseas who wish to spend a period of migration-related study at Queen Mary. Applications are invited from visiting research fellows and students.
