The African Academy for Migration Research (AAMR) is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and is an initiative of the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA). It is being implemented and managed by the African Centre for Migration and Society (ACMS) at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. The ACMS is the ARUA Centre of Excellence for Migration and Mobility.

The AAMR has two overarching aims: (1) to build the research capacity of the next generation of African migration scholars (2) to support the professional development of the next generation of African migration scholars.

The AAMR is running two virtual training institutes in the first quarter of 2022.
