Griffith is home to many academics undertaking research related to international migration
The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research offers a particularly wide range of qualitative and multidisciplinary research expertise on international migration. Our specialist research focuses on migration and displacement, trauma and memory, social inclusion, cross-cultural communication, disaster management, second-language acquisition and multilingualism, migrant, refugee and tourist mobilities, material cultures of migration, globalisation and cosmopolitanism, Islam-West relations, performance and creative arts for refugee integration, and the politics of migration, human security and development.
We also offer unique expertise on media, communications and journalism, which can be mobilised to support the TOGETHER campaign.
Key areas of specialisation include the media framing of Muslims, risk and crisis communications, social media, community media, traditional and alternative journalism practice, media law, ethno-nationalist media, and communication, culture and identity.
