Swissmig: Monitoring on Migration and Switzerland

This scientific monitoring is conducted by the documentation center of the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies (SFM) and the nccr-on the move. Launched in 2017, it aims to provide a comprehensive overview of published articles, book chapters, theses or scientific reports on the subjects of migration and citizenship in relation to Switzerland. It is also designed to help scholars and interested parties stay up to date with the scientific literature published on this topic.



Migration and Mental Health

Compiled by a scientific committee of international academics in collaboration with the Documentation Center of the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies / National Center of Competence in Research –The Migration-Mobility Nexus (NCCR) at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the ‘Migration and Mental Health’ database is a comprehensive collection of academic resources which focuses specifically on the topic of migration and mental health.

The database uses bibliographic research technologies to identify new publications with the selection of keyword attributions ensured by an international scientific committee of expert academics in the field. The project consists of a fully searchable online version of the bibliography of scientific publications published between September 2016 and April 2021. This database is no longer updated.



CLIMIG : Migration, Climate Change and the Environment

Compiled at the Institute of Geography of the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the Climig bibliographic database is the first comprehensive collection of resources which specifically concentrates on migration, the environment and climate change. The project consists of a fully searchable online version of the bibliography that is continuously updated with new publications. It aims to provide a free major hub for researchers on this important topic worldwide. The Climig database uses the most advanced bibliographic research technologies to identity new publications, but the selection, the entries and the keywords attribution are human made, ensuring scientific accuracy and coherence. We hope that this bibliography will serve as a valuable resource for all those interested in learning more about the migration, climate change and environment nexus.

International Student Mobility between the South and the North - nccr-on the move project (2014-2018)

Increased international student mobility has become one of the salient features of contemporary global migration. According to the OECD, the numbers of international students enrolled in tertiary education worldwide have significantly grown in recent decades: From 0.8 million in 1975 to 4.5 million in 2012. International students have been portrayed as playing a key role in research and innovation. This project aims at shedding light on the character and dynamics of international student mobility to Switzerland, through analysis of their study and post-study trajectories, and the role of institutional policies in shaping their (im)mobilities.
