Welcome to the Migration Lab

The Migration Lab is a research community that brings a wide range of scholarly expertise to bear upon contemporary migration issues. It aims to facilitate a multidisciplinary discussion that can educate and inform, and where possible, provide new frameworks for mitigating conflict and inequities.

Throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, the Migration Lab hosted a public series titled, "Global Migration: The Humanities and Social Sciences in Dialogue." The series brought together a multidisciplinary group of Princeton University faculty, along with visiting scholars from the United States and around the world, in lectures, conferences, exhibitions and commissioned theatre works. “Global Migration: The Humanities and Social Sciences in Dialogue” was funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
