Welcome to Manchester Migration Lab
The Migration Lab was launched in January 2017 as a joint initiative between The University of Manchester’s Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute and the Global Development Institute. It brings together the 70+ researchers who are working on migration issues across the University.
The Migration Lab has three main purposes:
- To support researchers at The University of Manchester to lead innovative research on migration.
- To create spaces for interdisciplinary and intersectoral dialogue about migration both within and beyond the University.
- To promote The University of Manchester’s migration research to academic, policy and practitioner audiences.
