About the project

CrossMigration supports the systematic accumulation of knowledge in migration studies.

The Migration Research Hub, aims to be the go-to resource for finding knowledge on migration, from the latest literature to the most appropriate topical experts. The taxonomy of migration studies developed through this project allows everyone to identify opportunities for collaboration and new research projects across disciplines and geographies.

The systematic approach to data collection and knowledge accumulation will promote and facilitate dialogue between researchers and policy stakeholders at the national and European level, and a clearer understanding of why and how migration occurs, who migrates and the effect of policy on these questions.

Discover the Taxonomy of Migration Studies!

The wealth of data gathered through the project will form the basis for developing a cross-national strategic research agenda for migration. And it will inform the public debate by allowing researchers to come up with theoretical scenarios that can be translated into interactive visualizations.

The project, funded through Horizon 2020, began in March 2018. It is led by IMISCOE, a consortium of leading migration scholars at 15 institutions from across Europe, advised by a global network of researchers.
