Partners: CMRS, Egypt

The Migration DRC has partnered with the Forced Migration and Refugee Studies centre (FMRS) based at the American University in Cairo. In 2008 FMRS changed its name to the Centre for Migration and Refugee Studies (CMRS).

The Center for Migration and Refugee Studies (CMRS) at the American University at Cairo, Egypt, has a regional research agenda on forced migration and refugees in urban centres of the 'South'. With funding from the Ford Foundation, CMRS offers both the M.A. degree and one-year graduate Diploma in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies, and a new one-year graduate Diploma in Psychosocial Interventions. CMRS currently includes 12 faculty members from anthropology, political science, law, psychology and journalism and communication studies and has a library with online catalogue and resources funded by the Mellon Foundation.

CMRS role in the DRC

Following a focus on DFID priority countries in 2008-09, CMRS is not currently actively participating in DRC research, but it is still partnering on number of other projects.
CMRS has been closely involved in establishing the DRC and deciding its research themes. CMRS has worked on the following DRC research projects:

1e: Gendered 'return home' - Sudanese refugees are coming back
5a: Internal and International migration in Egypt
6b: Forced Migration and Policy in the Middle East
6d: A social profile and analysis of migrant domestic employees in Cairo
