The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS), founded in New York in 1964, is one of the premier institutes for migration studies in the United States. It is committed to facilitating the study of sociodemographic, historical, economic, political, legislative and pastoral aspects of human migration and refugee movements. Incorporated in the State of New York in 1969 as an educational nonprofit institute, CMS brings an independent perspective to the interdisciplinary study of international migration and refugees without the institutional constraints of government analysts and special interest groups, or the profit considerations of private research firms. As the only institute in the United States devoted exclusively to understanding and educating the public on the causes and consequences of human mobility at both origin and destination countries, CMS performs a critical function in migration studies as it generates and facilitates the dissemination of new knowledge and fosters of effective policymaking.
