Applied and policy-oriented research is our most important asset. HIVA’s expertise encompasses the following research themes:

- Migration, civic integration and integration
- Environmental Policy and Sustainable Development

HIVA seeks to translate its research work into a broader offering of education and training. To this end, it organises conferences and study days. HIVA researchers are also regularly invited to participate as speakers in external training initiatives.
