About The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement

In January 2014, Co-Founders Professors Madeleine Arnot and Loraine Gelsthorpe, and Research Associate Dr Jessica Wheeler, launched the Cambridge Migration Research Network (CAMMIGRES), funded by the Vice-Chancellor’s Endowment Fund. CAMMIGRES, bought together a superb tract of migration research, spanning 23 University of Cambridge faculties, departments and centres, including researchers in anthropology, archaeology, history, politics, economics and land economy, geography, sociology, gender studies, psychology, health and education studies, management studies, linguistics, theology, criminology and law.

Expanding on this successful initiative Professors Loraine Gelsthorpe and Emeritus Professor Madeleine Arnot have won funding from the School of Humanities and Social Sciences to establish a self-sustaining Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement. The Centre seeks to support scholars in creating cross-disciplinary networks and partnerships within the University and with other universities and external agencies. It can assist scholars with grant applications and aims to ensure impact. We support workshops and conferences, provide seed funding to support research bids, host visiting researchers and encourage associate membership. The Centre also promotes transdisciplinary teaching and capacity-building for students, researchers and scholars alike.
