Our research aims to understand the complex challenges and opportunities for governments, societies, and the international community with regards to global migration.

Through our research groups, projects, initiatives, and affiliated courses, the UBC Centre for Migration studies hopes to share our expertise with key stakeholders including researchers, policymakers, immigrant and refugee services providers, and the public.

Our research is interdisciplinary in focus and includes everything from migration governance, immigrant integration and national identity formation to the politics of belonging, migration narratives, (im)mobilities, and the relationship between Indigeneity and migration.
