Currently, seven institutes are part of the EuMIGS-network:
IMISCOE is Europe's largest network of scholars in the area of migration and integration. The network involves 39 member institutes and over 500 scholars from all over Europe and focuses on comparative research, publications, the organization of events, PhD training and awards and communication. The network supports more than 30 research clusters and the IMISCOE annual conferences have become a key item in the agenda of most scholars in our field.
On Friday, 3 November 2017, the new European academic exchange programme European Master in Migration Studies (EuMIGS) was officially launched in the “Peace Hall” of the town hall of Osnabrück. Aim of the programme is to promote the mobility and cross-country learning of students and the exchange of teaching staff between eight high-level institutes of migration research and their respective master programmes. The new exchange programme is coordinated by the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS) at the University of Osnabrück.>>
In November 2018 the first cohort of students enrolled in the EuMIGS Double Degree-Programme met in Brussels. During the field trip they were introduced into different aspects of migration that can be studied in Europe's capitel: from EU-migration policies to labour market integration projects for migrants and refugees in Belgium and one of Brussel's - and Europe's - most diverse local communities. Much more than just a "field trip" the meeting served as a kick-off for the second year of their masters in Migration Studies that these students will spend at one of the EUMIgs partner institutes. It was the first time that they met each other as well as the coordinators of the EuMIGS-programme and the director of the IMISCOE-partner institute at Université de Liège who gave the group a tour through Molenbeek (see foto).>>
