Ensuring that South-South migration reduces inequalities and contributes to development
South-South migration has the potential to reduce inequalities and contribute to development. This potential has yet to be fully realised.
MIDEQ works with a global network of partners in twelve countries in the Global South, organised into six migration ‘corridors’, to transform understanding of the relationships between migration, development and inequality.
We work to shift the production of knowledge about migration and its consequences towards the countries where most migration takes place – engaging with contested concepts and definitions, decolonising research processes and generating new evidence and ideas.
Our ultimate aim is to translate knowledge and ideas into policies and practices which work to improve the lives of migrants, their families and the communities in which they live.
