Migration Policy Institute
The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) seeks to improve immigration and integration policies through research and analysis, opportunities for learning and dialogue, and the development of new ideas to address complex policy questions.
Founded in 2001, MPI has established itself as a leading institution in the field of migration policy and as a source of authoritative research, learning opportunities, and new policy ideas.
MPI maintains a special commitment to work on immigration and integration policies in North America and Europe, where its two offices are located, but it also remains active around the world, and takes a global and comparative approach to migration issues when possible.
The Migration Policy Institute Europe, based in Brussels, offers a placement opportunity for interested DPhil candidates to join our team for a minimum of three months. MPI Europe is looking for an open-minded, hard-working and collegial candidate who is keen on delving into the weeds of migration and asylum policymaking from a European perspective. During the placement, the candidate is expected to support the team with ongoing or future research projects as well as conceptualising and convening closed-door or public events. MPI is open to discussing the student's own research or project ideas to see how they align with our work. Prior expertise on migration and asylum issues is an asset.
