The GEMI (Grupo de Estudio sobre Migraciones Internacionales) is based at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and is interested in the study of international migrations and their impact on destination countries. Its research lines include migration policies, socio-cultural and labour market integration, migration theories, attitudes towards immigration and xenophobia. The group has a strong interdisciplinary character and includes sociologists, political scientists, social psychologists, anthropologists and economists. The group has established several collaborations with other research groups and within international networks, such as the IMISCOE research network. In addition, the group members have demonstrated an outstanding capacity in attracting external funding through national and international research calls. In 2018, the GEMI has received the ANECA ‘Evaluation of excellence’ for the research activities performed since 2013.
