EMPLOYEES OF THE MIGRATION RESEARCH INSTITUTE

The Migration Research Institute was established in September 2015 with the purpose of deepening our understanding of migration phenomena – in particular immigration in Europe – by synthesising the scientific findings of various disciplines.

Accordingly, the Institute pays special attention to studying the political, economic, social and cultural situation of the key countries of origin, transit and destination. In order to carry out research, our researchers frequently travel to these areas, thereby equipped with field experiences they are able to provide a more accurate description of the migration processes at work.

The Institute liaises with a number of international research institutes and experts and seeks to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between these actors.

The Institute also participates in the Hungarian social and scientific discourse on migration, to which our researchers contribute by regularly giving professional and educational presentations as well as media interviews.
