The Institute of Muggle Studies is a wizarding institute that studies and researches about Muggles.

History

Recently, the Institute of Muggle Studies has made research about Muggle-born wizards' wizarding ancestry[1] and Muggles' knowledge and perception of magic[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Following the outbreak of The Calamity, given the purpose of the institution and the fact that witches and wizards have been known to go online to research Muggles, it is likely that this research facility would be called upon to help keeping the the Calamity World Centre as well-informed as possible about recent developments and breaches of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy shared on social media.[3]
