Content of Research

For over a decade, GEOMIGRACE has been focusing on the research of international migration and the integration of migrants in Central/Eastern Europe with a special regard to Czechia and post-Soviet and Vietnamese migrants. Recently, questions of migration and development, the internal mobility of migrants in Czechia, environmental migration, migrants’ health status and access to healthcare, and the international migration of Czechs have become important parts of our research focus.

Besides monitoring, members of the centre analyse the causes, mechanisms and impacts of international migration and the integration of immigrants. Moreover, they also study the development of the Czech migration policy.

The research is based on a multidisciplinary approach with an emphasis on the geographic aspects of international migration and adaptation, and it is mainly conducted using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods.
