Sussex Centre for Migration Research

"Every immigrant is an emigrant, every alien a citizen, every foreigner a national" R. Waldinger (2015) The Cross-border Connection.

One of the first centres on Migration in the UK, the Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) builds on a longstanding reputation for original theoretically driven empirical research in the field of migration and ethnic relations.Sussex hosts one of the largest groups of migration scholars in the world and a large active and vibrant migration postgraduate community. True to the Sussex tradition, our approach to research, doctoral research and MA teaching is genuinely interdisciplinary and draws insights from sociology, human geography, anthropology, development studies, politics, law, psychology, education, economics and demography.
