External Research Associates

One of CCIS’s chief responsibilities is to develop one of the world’s most comprehensive research networks of scholars on the theme of international migration. To this aim, we have developed an extensive group of affiliates, both inside the UC system and externally. These affiliates compromise some of the world’s top migration scholars in the US and abroad.
