Emerging Scholars and Practitioners on Migration Issues
The Emerging Scholars and Practitioners on Migration Issues (ESPMI) is a group of scholars, practitioners and like-minded young persons focused on creating and encouraging a cooperative and helpful professional network for those working in the field of forced migration. This network is composed of those who seek to share their intellectual resources, advance their professional development, and promote the connectivity between the early years of involvement and more long-term careers and service provision in the field. The ESPMI was previously called the New Scholars Network, which was established as a cluster group within the Refugee Research Network.
Oxford Migration Studies Society
The Oxford Migration Studies Society (OMSS) is a University society that aims to connect people in Oxford examining any facet of migration. Society members include students and researchers from the RSC as well as from the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), the International Migration Institute (IMI) and other specialists in a range of disciplines, including anthropology, politics, history, geography and sociology.
Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration
The Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration (OxMo) is an independent, student run publication, supported by the RSC, that moves to engage with various aspects of forced migration through academic scholarship. OxMo is dedicated to protecting and advancing human rights of individuals who have been forcibly displaced. By monitoring political, legal and practical developments, it seeks to draw attention to the plight of forced migrants, identify gaps within existing international and national protection regimes and engage with the many practical and conceptual concerns which perpetuate displacement.
