About CGM

'Global migration is an important aspect of today’s world and society, and the phenomenon is characterised by two opposing trends that the new centre wants to acknowledge. One consists of increased immigration pressures due to political or military conflicts, poverty and environmental disasters. The other comprises increasingly restrictive national immigration policies and negative attitudes to the ongoing immigration'.
– Andrea Spehar, director of CGM

International migration affects society and individuals in many ways. It has important impacts on demographic structures, labour markets and international relations, and it also affects issues related to people’s identity and sense of belonging.

CGM gathers research about migration within several subject areas, including anthropology, medicine, psychology, political science, religious studies, history, education, law, economics and sociology. As a centre of expertise and research it aims to serve as a hub for collaboration or interaction and organizes seminars on migration and integration.

Global migration seminars

The CGMs own seminar series, the ”global migration seminars” are held on Wednesdays at the Institute for Global Studies, between 9:15 to 11:00. Before the seminars we invite you for breakfast, from 8:30.

The intention of these seminars is to present current research on migration and integration though different academic viewpoints, to showcase the cross-disciplinary width within the field. We also want to create a platform for knowledge sharing and cooperation both between researchers from different disciplines and between researchers and practitioners.

Information on our previous seminars are available in the section activities
