CMS Releases the Journal on Migration and Human Security


The Center for Migration Studies is pleased to announce the release of the Journal on Migration and Human Security (JMHS), an online, peer-reviewed public policy publication. JMHS addresses timely migration-related issues, scholarship and analysis that receive insufficient attention in US and international policy debates. The journal draws upon the knowledge, expertise and perspectives of scholars, public officials, faith communities, community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations, corporate leaders and others.

The journal’s theme of “human security” is meant to evoke the widely shared goals of creating secure and sustaining conditions in migrant sending communities; promoting safe, legal migration options and developing immigration and integration policies that benefit sending and receiving communities and allow newcomers to lead productive, secure lives. Papers are published online on a monthly basis at and annually in hard copy format.
