The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is an educational institute and nonpartisan think tank based in New York City that studies domestic immigration and international migration issues.[1] In recent years, CMS has been known for producing research addressing the U.S. immigrant detention system[2] and data on the unauthorized immigrant population in the United States.[3][4][5]


CMS publishes the International Migration Review,[6] an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, as well as the Journal on Migration and Human Security, a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles of policy-oriented research on the topic of migration.[7]


CMS has an extensive archive that is used widely for migration-related scholarship on immigration to the United States from the mid-19th to the 21st century, spanning (among movements to other geographic areas) immigrants to New England, the Midwest, the South, and the Pacific Northwest.[8] Materials from the CMS archives have been featured in a variety of publications and media, including the 2014 PBS documentary series The Italian Americans.[9]
