The University of Oxford is a world-leader in terms of the study of international migration, whether forced or voluntary. Migration research within Oxford shares common imperatives, including: ensuring independence, pioneering new theoretical, methodological, and interdisciplinary approaches and delivering research findings and knowledge beyond the academic world.

Oxford boasts five major research centres (Border Criminologies; Centre on Migration, Policy and Society; Refugee-Led Research HubRefugee Studies Centre; Transport Studies Unit) and several researchers working on incisive and innovating research projects on migration and mobility across divisions and departments brought together by Migration Oxford.

The five main research centres on migration and mobility in Oxford have complementary, interconnecting research agendas but each has a particular research focus within this complex area of study.

COMPAS is one of the 61 member institutes of IMISCOE.
