People Professor Michael Keith

Oxford Martin Senior Fellow, Oxford Martin School


Director of COMPAS

Research interests focus on the interface between culture, urbanism and migration. Prof Keith’s current work develops past projects on the dynamics of urbanism, the study of cultural difference and the impact of migration on structures and processes of governance. One strand of this considers the politics of migration, integration, cohesion and everyday life in the United Kingdom. A second strand considers the dynamics of migration, city transformation and emergent markets in contemporary China. Prof Keith is also Director of the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) and holds a personal chair in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oxford.
