Over the course of the last 10 years, the Migrating out of Poverty consortium has drawn on the enthusiasm and expertise of many people across the globe. This blog series focuses on the people behind the research, who have kindly shared personal reflections and learning from their experience of working with the consortium.
Yordanos worked with the Migrating out of Poverty programme for over a year, as a migration researcher and writer, specialising in irregular migration, and migration industry in the African context.
“I’ve learned skills and methodology for transnational research communication, and particularly communication among migration researchers from the so-called global North and Global South countries. More importantly, I’ve examined theoretical arguments against findings from field research in the global South including dangerous places like the city of like Johannesburg and its satellite informal townships
The Migrating out of Poverty programme has boosted international networking, created platforms to present and disseminate the findings of the research, while also enabling comparative research analyses.
The Migrating out of Poverty programme has been a true team effort, and we appreciate the role each individual has played in producing and disseminating the research.I’m most proud of our publication of policy briefs and working papers as well as our dissemination of the field research findings to relevant stakeholders.”
Thank you for all your hard work with the Migrating out of Poverty programme, Yordanos!
