The Migration and Health Research Center is a joint initiative of the Davis and Berkeley campuses of the University of California. MAHRC strives to improve the health of migrant communities globally by conducting and disseminating research, promoting awareness and engaging with national and international partners working on migration and health issues. The Center generates knowledge for both academic and non-academic audiences and sponsors the annual Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health. Research and associate faculty promote migrant health research through social media, lectures, policy briefings and other avenues. For more information visit http://mahrc.ucdavis.edu/.
The Migration Research Cluster (MRC) is a research network that brings together economists, sociologists, political scientists, historians, demographers and law scholars to promote multidisciplinary research on international migration. The cluster focuses on the social, economic and cultural aspects of migration and implications for policy. It is one of seven research clusters funded by the 2013 UC Davis Interdisciplinary Frontiers in the Humanities and Arts (IFHA) grants competition. IFHA is part of the new UC Davis Interdisciplinary Frontiers Program (IFP), an initiative of the Office of Research to promote research and scholarly activities on campus that reach across disciplines. The goal of MRC is to promote training, research opportunities, dissemination and fund raising to enhance the visibility, quality and effectiveness of multi-disciplinary research on International Migrations at UC Davis.
The Migration Research Cluster is headed by seven UC Davis faculty, and is supported by an active associate professor group, graduate students, and other experts. The diversity of the people involved in this Cluster will allow it to focus on social, cultural, and economic aspects of migrations, the policies regulating them, and their consequences.
