The Journal on Migration and Human Security (JMHS) is a peer-reviewed public policy publication of the Center for Migration Studies (CMS). The journal’s theme of “human security” is meant to evoke the widely shared goals of creating secure and sustaining conditions in migrant sending communities; promoting safe, legal migration options; and developing immigration and integration policies that benefit sending and receiving communities and allow newcomers to lead productive, secure lives. This thematic focus encompasses the broad scope of the social, political, and economic dimensions of “human security.”

JMHS seeks to publish rigorous and well-argued papers that can significantly inform and contribute to the US and international policy debates on migration. It particularly welcomes papers that:

· Address timely migration-related “human security” issues, broadly defined;

· Cover issues and research that receive insufficient attention in immigration policy circles;

· Provide new information, ideas, non-traditional perspectives, comparative scholarship, or multi-disciplinary analysis; and

· Articulate areas of agreement and disagreement on particular issues, as well as gaps in knowledge.

Papers are published online on a monthly basis. In addition, CMS compiles a hard-copy volume of JMHS articles at the end of each year.
