The Migrationist is an international, collaborative academic/professional blog designed to promote public discourse informed by academics and professionals who focus on issues surrounding migration, refugees, and human trafficking.  This blog is intended as a medium for intelligent discourse on migration issues.  We’re informed by academia, but our intent is to bring this discussion out of academia and into an accessible forum for anyone who is interested in migration.

We currently post weekly and have twelve different regular contributors from seven different countries around the world.

This blog was founded in September 2012 by co-editors Amy Grenier and Lali Foster, former M.A. Migration Studies students at University of Sussex in Brighton, United Kingdom.  We currently have regular contributors from all over the world and are always looking for both regular and guest contributors for this blog.
