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 and impact-based 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.
