Migration Research Group
Leading global migration and mobility research from the University of Sheffield
Who Are We?
An interdisciplinary network of scholars conducting world-leading research on global migration and mobility.
Our research is broad ranging and includes the politics and governance of migration, bordering and resistance, motives for migration and the experiences and lives of migrants young and old, the impacts of migration on sending, transit and destination countries, and much more. Together, we seek dialogue and debate to support world leading research.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Sheffield MRG, or would like to find out more about how this platform can be used to showcase a diverse range of migration research activities, we would love to hear from you.
