The UBC Centre for Migration Studies seeks to understand the drivers and consequences of international migration through research, education, and outreach.
International migration presents complex challenges and opportunities for governments, societies, and the international community. At the UBC Centre for Migration Studies, we bring together researchers and collaborators from a wide range of disciplines, to promote debate and share their expertise on cross-border migration. Our research covers various migration-related topics, including social inclusion and integration, immigration policy, public opinion and xenophobia, border politics, and the intersection of Indigeneity and immigration.
The Centre for Migration Studies is supported by the GCRC program of the Office of the Vice President, Research and Innovation, the Faculty of Arts, the Departments of Political Science, Sociology, Geography, Anthropology, and Central, Eastern and Northern European Studies, and the Peter A. Allard School of Law.
