Monash University Malaysia
Researchers in the School of Arts and Social Sciences are interested in the intersections between social and cultural change, human rights, digital freedoms and constraints, citizenship, social movements and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), politics and governance. As such, migration and mobility are foci for much of our work, particularly in Southeast Asia and contingent regions. Our research interrogates how and whether communities and groups defined by gender, ethnicity, religion and class, and overlaid by the implications of migration, are able to exercise rights and fully live out their identities in society.

The Centre brings together expertise from across Monash, community, industry and academic partner networks, to generate practical solutions, inform policy and engage with industry and community groups on migration, inclusion, settlement and irregular migration issues.
