The essence of COMPAS’s work for two decades has been undertaking research designed to have a societal impact. But what sort of real effects does migration research have on communities? Does migration researchers' work inevitably create a better society – or can we also make things worse? What are the boundaries of 'migration studies' in a globalised society where almost no aspect is unaffected by migration and where understanding immobilities is as critical as understanding mobility?

Attendance is free, and all are welcome.
