Georgetown University takes a multidisciplinary approach to the issues of migration and refugees.
Students and faculty engage with these issues through research, teaching, and service across campuses and through key resources including the Institute for the Study of International Migration, regionally focused academic centers, the Georgetown Immigration Law Journal, and community service organized by the Center for Social Justice. The university’s Washington, D.C., location provides opportunities for partnerships with international organizations and practitioners in the fields of migration and refugees. In keeping with Georgetown’s Jesuit identity and the principle of women and men for others, the university community approaches these issues as ethical and not just academic and policy challenges.
