We are a partnership of faculty, researchers and students who investigate human mobility, immigrants’ integration and the ways migration transforms societies around the world.

Globally, 244 million people have left their birthplace and live in another country. Locally, more than one in four Californians are immigrants. Our interdisciplinary network of researchers places the social, political, legal and economic dynamics of immigration in the Bay Area within global trends of economic mobility, forced migration and family reunification. We seek a holistic picture of migration that embraces new data-gathering technologies as well as embedded, on-the-ground fieldwork, and which draws on the expertise of faculty, students and the communities we study.
