Global migration is one of the most important and pervasive societal issues of the 21st century, yet there is limited knowledge of the phenomenon in a holistic and global frame. The Global Migration Center will be a focal point for interdisciplinary and multimethodological research focused on migrants. A key asset of the center will be its multidisciplinary approach to understanding the new challenges of global migration that affect climate migrants, refugees, and vulnerable and at-risk migrants, and developing research-based action. The center will be a critical hub for the translation of research into policy advice, action and support of immigrant communities. Funds may be used to host events, conference fees, research, other support as needed by the Global Migration Center.
