Our overarching vision is to:

  • Disrupt dominant assumptions about the reasons why people move and the consequences of migration
  • Deepen knowledge and understanding of the relationships between South-South migration, inequality and delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Explore the impact and effectiveness of interventions designed to reduce inequalities associated with South-South migration
  • Build interdisciplinary migration research capacity in the Global South by providing extended opportunities for knowledge exchange and training
  • Bring new and existing knowledge and expertise into contact with local, national and international organisations
  • Influence national and international policy processes
  • Challenge dominant narratives on migration
  • Improve the lives of migrants, their families and the communities of which they are a part
