The Migration Research Cluster

The Migration Research Cluster is a research network bringing together Economists, Sociologists, Political Scientists, Historians, Demographers and Law Scholars working on issues related to international migrants and migration. The Cluster was founded in 2013 with the help of an IFHA grant from UC Davis and has operated since then developing innovative multi-disciplinary research to study issues linked to the determinants and consequences of International Migrations. In particular, the researchers in the Cluster study how international movements of people are driven by economic, demographic, political, historical and social determinants and how they reshape the economy and society of the receiving countries.
