Migration and Refugees

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.
