Published By: Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty

The Centre’s work has included the compilation of data on migration flows, with an emphasis on those least-well represented in existing datasets; conceptual analysis of the links between migration, globalisation and poverty; major thematic and regional reviews of emerging migration issues and policies; as well as targeted empirical field research in a number of countries in West Africa, South Asia, the Middle East and South-East Europe. This work has resulted in the compilation of a number of robust databases and user-friendly web resources; the production of more than 40 working papers and 50 refereed journal articles or book chapters; and new conceptual approaches in areas that include, but are not limited to, the migration of children and youth; the mobility of highly skilled professionals; and social protection by and for work migrants.
