The project CrossMigration aims at establishing an interactive online migration research hub for stakeholders and scholars to facilitate the access to and overview of knowledge and data on migration related issues. The research hub will allow for thematic searches, visualisations and the development of scenarios and will also feature synthesis studies on key migration questions and on cross-national knowledge regarding migration drivers, infrastructures, flows and policies. Key for this research hub will be the development of a new classification system for migration research, also with the goal to establish it as the commonly used classification by journals and publishers active in migration research. This will facilitate a more efficient cooperation within the interdisciplinary field of migration research.
