Federation of Centers for Migration Studies

The Federation of Scalabrini Centers for Migration Studies unites seven centers across the world, each devoted to research and advocacy on migration. Located in New York, Paris, Rome, Basel, São Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Manila, these centers monitor the development of international migration. All of them are organized with similar departments, including a program dedicated to research, another dedicated to specialized publications—including periodicals, monographs and academic papers—as well as programs dedicated to documentation, conferences, and other educational activities.

The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is a leading educational institute and think tank devoted to the study of international migration, to the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees, internally displaced people, and seafarers.
