 CENTER FOR MIGRATION STUDIES

GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY GALA


In 2014, the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) celebrates 50 years of commitment to the study of international migration, the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees and newcomers.

And on September 30, 2014, CMS hosted government officials, policymakers, scholars, experts, civil society members, staff and colleagues for a special Golden Anniversary Gala  at Battery Gardens Restaurant in New York City, overlooking the Statue of Liberty.
