Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative
Three of ISSI’s centers, Center for Latino Policy Research, Center for Research on Social Change, and Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, are among the founding partners of this new initiative to investigate human mobility, immigrants’ integration and the ways migration transforms societies around the world. The initiative seeks to bring together UC Berkeley faculty and students researching migration and leverage these connections for further innovation.
