Center for Migration and Refugee Studies



"Being a graduate student at CMRS was certainly a life-changing experience; it has shaped my career toward doctoral studies and pursuing research that is not only solid academically but equally useful to identifying the needs of migrants and refugees. I remain very grateful to CMRS for nurturing my passion for the field of migration." Sara Sadek, CMRS graduate 2006.

"I am a medical doctor by background and have worked with refugees, IDPs and immigrants throughout my career in Sudan, Egypt, Algeria, Liberia, Somalia, Yemen and Canada. Earning a graduate diploma in refugee studies and a master's in migration and refugee studies at CMRS has given me a long career with United Nations agencies and solid research knowledge and practice. The fact that the center is situated in Egypt, at the highest ranking University, gives it a unique position to provide up-to-date information on migration and refugee issues in Africa and the Middle East. Returning to CMRS has always felt like a homecoming. The center also has a unique collection of Grey Literature for interested scholars. I highly recommend this program!" Iman Ahmed, MBBS, MA, Researcher, CMRS
