Globalization, Urbanization and Migration

A yellow globe of the world

The Globalization, Urbanization and Migration (GUM) site is an ongoing collaborative research site and network that gathers empirical data at the urban level to measure immigration in cities around the world. Housed in the Department of Geography at the George Washington University’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, the project is funded in part by the GW Center for the Study of Globalization. 

How cities navigate immigrant-driven cultural diversity will shape local and national policy debates in the years ahead. To better inform these debates, we have developed this website that makes urban-level data available to the public.
