New Migration Research Group Launched for Interdisciplinary Study of Mobility, Migration

November 15, 2016

Bringing together the little connected migration scholarship at CEU departments, research centers, and other units, the newly established Migration Research Group (MiRG) now provides a platform across disciplines for faculty, students and researchers at CEU who have an interest in the study of mobility and migration. The group holds regular meetings for informal and congenial debate of migration topics and to discuss ongoing research of the members with a specialized audience.

Furthermore, it seeks to foster collaborative research among its members. Additionally, it organizes events, workshops, and public lectures to raise the visibility and impact of migration research at CEU.

Starting from October 27, MiRG will regularly convene each second Thursday from 3.30 to 5.00 pm at Nador 15, room 101.

The research group's bi-weekly meetings are open to all interested members of the CEU community.

The Migration Research Group has been consolidated with generous faculty support by Andrew Cartwright, co-director of the Center for Policy Studies,  and generous administrative support by Tunde Szabolcs and Robert Sata from the Department of Political Science.
