Migration and Refugees

An interdisciplinary and holistic approach to global migration and protection of people affected by displacement is key to challenge pessimistic narratives about global migration. International migration is a complex phenomenon that encompasses a wide variety of movements, cultures and walks of life. We aim to contribute to the global effort to move towards a development-based approach to migration. International migration and protection of people affected by displacement are complex phenomena that touch on a variety of social, geopolitical, economic, environmental and security aspects. Our work investigates migration policy in countries of destination and origin.


Specific areas of competence include: protection of people affected by displacement, internally displaced people, climate change migration, labour migration, skilled migration, development and migration, rights-based approach to migration, human rights, returns and relocation, integration and vocational training, diversity and inclusion.
