The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement


Dear Friends of the Centre,

Happy 2022! And thank you for your ongoing support during 2021 as we have continued our global conversations on the past and present of movement: from the tourist to the displaced, from aspirations to realities, from analysing national and global policies to examining our own practices at the University of Cambridge. We had the honour of hosting Lord DubsProfessor BhabhaProfessors Hirsch and Spitzer as well as Mr Prentice (Head of the UN Network on Migration), with a wonderful personal note to movement by our VC Professor Toope. In 2021, we also had the pleasure of hosting two conferences, Memories in Transit and UK Immigration Post-Brexit and are already looking forward to the upcoming conferences for 2022, Identity Abroad in Europe and the Mediterranean and Post-Windrush Generation.

In 2021, we have also developed our Refugee Hub, bringing together research, practice and policy at the University of Cambridge. Apart from research on refuge and displacement, the hub contains practical advice for refugees and asylum-seekers to enable access to the University of Cambridge and serves as a hub for refugee-related initiatives at the University of Cambridge with links to the City of Cambridge. 
Our thanks to our members who supported us in establishing a thriving Centre and without whom this success would not have been possible. Thank you for being part of our community.

On behalf of the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement, wishing you a healthy and happy New Year!

Warm regards,

Tugba Basaran
