     The Center for Migration and Refugee Studies Database is a comprehensive location where migration and refugee research material (especially, but not exclusively) on the Middle East region is compiled.  This database aims to facilitate research by bringing together legal authorities (international treaties, regional agreements and national legislation), analytical sources and academic publications and statistical figures in one location to be accessed by researchers with interest in this field of study.

     The Database is divided into different topics and organized by country for your ease of reference. The different topics are: Legal Instruments, Statistics and Figures and Analytical Sources. We also provide a detailed directory of Organizations around the world that could be helpful to researchers.
