At York, Migration Matters.

Migration Matters is a brand new initiative that aims to showcase migration scholars and scholarship at York University. Through a series of seminars and roundtable discussions, we hope to spark a university-wide conversation that digs deep into pressing migration-related matters, exploring questions from a wide range of perspectives and fields of study. This project is hosted by the Centre for Refugee Studies and supported by the Office of the Vice President, Research & Innovation.

We know that there are many scholars at York who research with a lens on migration, immigration, transnationalism, settlement, refugee studies, and more, engaging in thought-provoking and meaningful work. This series is a forum for interdisciplinary discussion, providing opportunities to share knowledge and hear what others are passionate about. We also hope this will be a chance to meet each other and create connections.
