CReAM is an independent and interdisciplinary research centre located in the Department of Economics at University College London. CReAM’s research focuses on the causes, patterns and consequences of international population mobility and movements affecting UK, Europe and associated global processes. CReAM aims at informing the public debate on migration in the UK and in Europe by providing new insight, helping to steer the current policy debate in a direction that is based on carefully researched evidence without partisan bias. CReAM contributes to the development of new theories and methodological advances in data analysis, ensuring the ability to contribute and inform on a wide range of issues of policy concern, and establishing a reputation for analysis that is accepted as open, transparent and reliable.

CReAM ‘s research programme is divided into four major research themes:

  • Forms of population movement and mobility
  • The non-migrant experience – effects of migration on importing and exporting countries
  • The migrant experience – integration, adaptation and exclusion
  • Perception of migrants within receiving countries – identity and aspects of social cohesion.

CReAM forms strategic links with other research centres on migration in the UK, as well as internationally.  CReAM fosters international and collaborative research through links with prominent and
reputed researchers inside and outside the UK.

Funding for CReAM research comes from a variety of sources, including ERC and the NORFACE Welfare Initiative.
