In this final update for 2016 we draw your attention to some of the highlights of our year in migration research: the launch of our new blog, research findings from work on migrants in countries in crisis, asylum and visa policies, and the political integration of migrants in Europe, and a reminder of the wealth of data on the long-term evolution of global migration policies and flows that we've made available this year from the DEMIG project.
We've been active too on the events front, hosting our ten-year anniversary conference, The Changing Face of Global Mobility, at the top of the year, and organising a running team for the Oxford Half Marathon, fundraising for local charity Asylum Welcome. Our researcher Marieke van Houte has been busy developing and performing with physical theatre company Justice in Motion the CONTAINED Project, a series of performances on three key aspects of migration: decisions and journeys, arrival and reception, and movements and changes.
Our seminar series has gone from strength-to-strength and we offer you the chance to catch up with any you couldn't attend in person through our thriving podcast series. For those contemplating further study in 2017, we're delighted to showcase our MSc in Migration Studies through a short video that gives a flavour of what students on the course learn about key migration concepts, methods and theories across the social sciences.
