Impact Initiatives: building capacity
MIDEQ has allocated Flexible Funding to all country partners and four work packages to enable its partners to maximise the impacts of their work as well as to take advantage of local and regional opportunities as they arise. These initiatives build on the findings of the research. They are designed to amplify current research and generate additional impacts. Intended impacts are aligned to the impact pathways identified in MIDEQ’s overarching Theory of Change namely: knowledge development and academic capacity building; improving the lives of migrants, their families, and the communities in which they live; and supporting and influencing change in narratives on migration and migrants. Summaries of the initiatives funded to date following three rounds of calls for proposals are captured below. One further call will be published before March 2023.
Knowledge development & academic capacity building
This pathway represents MIDEQ’s contribution to addressing some of the most critical problems identified at the proposal stage, namely the lack of data and research about South-South migration and inequality specifically and the lack of capacity to produce such research in the Global South. The attached PDF download gives a summary of all the projects in this pathway.
