Migrations and Development
Migrations shape since ever human beings societies: "today more then a billion people rely on international and internal migration to escape poverty and conflict" (Peter Sutherland, UN).
Migration represents an important thematic focus in the setting of Development and Cooperation.
SUPSI is a member of the Consortium for Education and Research on Sustainable Migrations of the network "Swissuniversities Development and Cooperation"

We seek global solutions that take an active part in structuring the public dialogue on migration and development by performing applied researches on the field. Our location close to the Swiss Southern border, one of the main entry points of migrants allows us to be efficiently active in emerging problems and in finding soulutions and strategies relevant for policy makers. SUPSI is active since a decade in the sector of migration with its Centre for Documentation and Migration Research
