International Center for Refugees and Migration Studies

Inviting Evaluators for Research Award 2024

Since its inception in 2017 with the backing of UNHCR, the International Center for Refugees and Migration Studies (ICRMS) at BUITEMS has been a guiding light for displaced communities. Through dynamic research, impactful lectures, and awareness initiatives, we empower Afghan refugees in Pakistan, tackling identity crises, educational barriers, and social stigmas. Aligned with UNHCR principles, our mission fosters interdisciplinary research on human mobility, from grassroots to global scales. Our vision? A world where refugee rights are championed, shaping policy and discourse on migration. Join us in shaping a brighter future for all.
