Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig)

Migration is one of the most pressing and complex issues of the 21st century at a global scale. The Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig) brings together scholars of the Göttingen Campus from six different faculties and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (MPI-MMG). By engaging in interdisciplinary collaboration, pooling diverse methodological approaches, and employing different thematic and regional foci, CeMig is able to develop innovative approaches to the opportunities and challenges posed by migration.


CeMig aims to establish new formats of knowledge transfer in addition to strengthening research and teaching in the area of migration. It endeavours to contribute to public debates and to facilitate the inclusion of stakeholders from civil society, politics, industry and business in the discussion.
