With over 244 million international migrants globally and over 65.6 million people displaced mainly by conflicts, displacement and migration are among the most pressing topics on the international agenda for policy makers today. Issues surrounding global displacement and migration processes cross manifold intellectual boundaries. Understanding the issue demands insights and methods from a broad array of specialties.
CGP’s Displacement and Migration Program is therefore a multi-disciplinary program that aims to study the root causes/drivers of displacement and migration and offer expert advice and research, to states, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders on innovative policy formulation to meet these evolving challenges. The program is therefore working on a number of projects to facilitate this by engaging with members of the U.S. Government, policymakers in international organizations including the OIC and UN, and individuals directly impacted by forced migration and genocide.
