CERIS publishes a blog post every month. The posts appear on our website and are shared broadly via the CERIS newsletter. If you would like to get your piece published, read the guidelines below.

Guidelines for Blog Contributors

Our blog is open to guest bloggers, CERIS affiliates and others working in academic, policy and community settings. This space is used as a forum to share perspectives on topical issues. These perspectives should be informed by research or practice, and be of interest to faculty, students, practitioners and policy makers in migration and settlement.

The posts should be written in clear language that is directed to an informed audience, but that may not be specialized in the particular discussion topic. A clear question/issue should animate the entries. Questions/issues may be relevant to policy at the federal, provincial or municipal level; migration scholarship; and advocacy.

A photo and/or graphic (such as a data visualization aid) should be included to enhance the blog entry. Submissions will be reviewed and then posted to the blog, with comments open. CERIS will approve all comments that do not violate typical posting norms. While we welcome a range of opinions, we insist on informed and civil exchanges.

CERIS reserves the right to edit posts, refuse posts, and reject comments.

Length: 250-700 words
