The Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) works to advance and promote the University of Birmingham’s expertise in the emerging field of superdiversity. It is the first institute in the UK and one of the first globally, to focus on superdiversity.

The institute addresses important issues related to: population dynamics, security, cohesion and integration, identity, global networks, rights and citizenship, service delivery, well-being, social exclusion, and the opportunities that a superdiverse society offers to support economic recovery.

University of Oxford

The Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) at the University of Oxford is a research centre geared to deepening our understanding of the relationship between migration and societal change.

COMPAS has five core research clusters: flows and dynamics, labour markets, citizenship and belonging, urban change and settlement and welfare. COMPAS has also established the Migration Observatory, a multi-media platform providing user-friendly access to authoritative and independent analysis of data on migrants and migration issues.
