About Us

The Swiss Network of Young Migration Scholars (SNyMS) is a non-profit association founded in Berne on 14 August 2014 that brings together young migration scholars from different scientific disciplines, universities and language regions in Switzerland. It is also open to academic staff and professionals, to institutions and private persons with a special affiliation to the migration field in Switzerland.

The purposes of the SNyMS are to

  • provide a platform for cooperation, discussion and exchange for Migration Scholars

  • disseminate information and share opportunities regarding Migration Studies Research

  • organize gatherings for academics within the Migration Studies Research

  • function as a public resource on Migration Studies Research.

Our Projects

Projects are one of the core businesses of this Network as they create opportunities for our members to mingle, brainstorm, exchange, research and propose creative solutions. They enable young researchers to work together with a team of people from different backgrounds.

Members are welcome to join existing projects at any time or start new ones.
