CeMoRe – The Centre for Mobilities Research

CeMoRe initiated the new mobilities paradigm in the social sciences, arts, humanities and sciences. This encompasses the analysis of global, national and local movements and immobilities of people, objects, capital, information, knowledge and material things which combine to engender the economic and social patterning of life. It was the first such centre, founded in 2003 by John Urry and Mimi Sheller, and continues to be at the heart of this burgeoning global field.
