The research program consists of four research themes which can be explored through the adjacent menu. The program strikes a balance between issues of special concern to Canada—such as the retention of migrants in second- and third-tier cities, and the transition from temporary to permanent status—and those of more global relevance—through comparative research, such as the determinants and drivers of mixed migration internationally, migratory flows between other worlds regions such China, South Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and the governance of cultural and religious diversity across the world.

The area leads for our themes are as follows:

  • Marshia Akbar, Research Area Lead on Labour Migration
  • Amin Moghadam, Research Lead, Cities and Migration; Responsable du développement du réseau francophone de la recherche
  • Richa Shivakoti, Research Area Lead, Migration Governance
