The Centre of Migration Research (CMR) is an interdisciplinary inter-faculty research unit of the University of Warsaw (UW), specialising in studies on migration processes in Poland and in Europe. Established in 1993 is one of the oldest and largest migration research institutes in Europe. Currently, 60 researchers are affiliated with the CMR; among them 10 Professors and 32 researchers holding a PhD degree. Academic and research activities were the main goal of the CMR since the origins. The Centre has been involved in a number of migration projects (varying in scale), funded by national and international sources. The major research fields covered by CMR studies include: theories and methods in migration studies, determinants of migration decisions on different analytical levels, causes and consequences of emigration from Poland, inflow and operation of foreigners on the Polish labour market, formation, development and integration of immigrant groups in Poland, migration policy in Poland and the UE, borders and irregular migration, and social mobility of migrants. The research program implemented by the CMR assumes a multi-method and multidisciplinary approach.
