Greetings

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Migration Research Institute (MRI) which was founded by the Mathias Corvinus Collegium Foundation and the Századvég Foundation.

Migration is one of the biggest challenges of our time both in the developed and in the developing world. We experience that globalization has brought to the surface at least as many problems as it has solved. The long-term consequences of mass immigration are reshaping complete societies and affecting the fate of millions. For this reason, it is of key importance to get as clear a picture as possible of this phenomenon. We believe that the scientific community has a crutial role in mapping the drivers and social impacts of migration. Our institute was established in the autumn of 2015 with the undisguised purpose of researching and explaining immigration to Europe in a scientific and understandable way to an audience interested in the topic, however lacking academic background.
