Journal on Migration and Human Security

Journal on Migration and Human Security


The Journal on Migration and Human Security (JMHS) is a peer-reviewed publication that seeks to feature cutting-edge, evidence-based public policy papers. Its “human security” rubric is meant to evoke the widely shared goals of creating secure and sustaining conditions in migrant sending communities; promoting safe, orderly and legal migration; and developing rights-respecting immigration and immigrant integration policies that benefit sending and receiving communities and allow newcomers to lead productive, secure lives. JMHS papers are published online as they become available, and compiled in hard-copy volumes each year. CMS also publishes special, thematic editions of JMHS.


JMHS provides free availability of articles online without delay.
