Since 2001, we have convened leading scholar-practitioners from the fields of migration, development, human rights, conflict resolution, and humanitarian action. By connecting and creating synergies between experts on migration and experts on the drivers of displacement, we produce problem-driven research that not only attracts graduate students from across the world, but also the attention of policy makers and practitioners.
