Migration Research Center

The phenomenon of migration has been a significant factor in shaping humanity and civilizations throughout history. In this context, historically, Turkey has been one of the leading regions that first came to mind regarding migration, in terms of its diaspora and geographical location as a crossroads of migration routes. However, especially in recent years, regional developments related to migration and the role played by our country necessitates the formation of a Turkey-based migration perspective. Therefore, the Turkish Migration Research Center (MRC) started its journey to research migration issues and to produce policies associated with Turkey, that determined its primary research areas as migration towards Turkey, migration history, settlement, coherence, participation policies.
