The Centre for Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB)

Email CMRB


The Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB) is led by co-directors Prof. Nira Yuval-Davis, Prof. Gargi Bhattacharyyra, Georgie Wemyss and Prof. Giorgia Dona. It brings together the interdisciplinary work carried out within the School, in the related areas of migration and refugee studies, diasporas and social cohesion, racism, nationalism and political religions, as well as intersectional citizenship, identity and belonging.

CMRB also collaborates with individuals, academic institutions and civic organisations outside UEL on research, conferences and seminars, in order to build knowledge on these crucial issues and provide a space for debate and creative thinking. Disciplinary and methodological approaches employed by CMRB members demonstrate an enriching heterogeneity, ranging from history to ethnography, narrative analysis to performance, anthropology to cultural studies, and sociology to film studies.
