We engage in research about migration, mobility, urban diversity and multicultures.
Researchers at TCRU working on these issues come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, including anthropology, psychology, sociology, socio-legal and psychosocial studies.
Our studies include:
- explorations of identity and the migration experiences of families and young people
- parenting and friendships in super-diverse and mixed class settings
- transitions to adulthood among ethnic minority youth
- the intersections of 'race', gender and migration for young people
- social differentiation among diaspora groups
- everyday understandings of difference and affinities in urban contexts
- socio-legal approaches to migration and refugee issues
- legality, legal consciousness, legal pluralism
- migrants and refugees' everyday experiences of the law
- language brokering in transnational families
- and serial migration.
Migration and Society
Our centre co-hosts the journal Migration and Society, an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal advancing debate about emergent trends in all types of migration.
