Goals: the main objective of the observatory is to study analytically topical issues on migration, such as the economic and social impact of immigration on receiving and sending countries or the implications of different migration policies, from an international and cross-disciplinary perspective. Then, it aims to construct a critical mass of academic knowledge in order to increase the visibility of Collegio Carlo Alberto and Centro Studi Luca d’Agliano in the policy debate.
1 – Promoting analytical knowledge on topical issues such as the wider economic and social impacts of immigration on receiving and sending countries and the implications of different migration policies, from an international and cross-disciplinary perspective;
2 – Strengthening research links between the two institutions, and facilitating interdisciplinary migration research;
3 – Positioning Collegio Carlo Alberto/LdA as central actors in migration research, with the two-fold objective of becoming highly visible in the policy debate, and construct a critical mass of academic knowledge which facilitates access to international research grants.
