Migrating out of Poverty research programme consortium is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID). It focuses on the relationship between internal and regional migration and poverty. From 2017 we are focusing on Africa in collaboration with four university partners in Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal and South Africa. Migrating out of Poverty is coordinated out the University of Sussex. We have had collaborations with partners in Bangladesh, Kenya, Singapore, India, Nepal, and Cambodia.
Our main goal
The goal of Migrating out of Poverty is to maximise the poverty reducing and developmental impacts of migration and minimise the costs and risks of migration for poor people.
Although migration does not necessarily lead to such positive outcomes, Migrating out of Poverty works to produce research which sheds light on the circumstances in which migration can most effectively reduce poverty.
