A new site was launched today for the Leeds Migration Network – an interdisciplinary research network of academics and practitioners in the area of migration research baesd out of University of Leeds.
The network has been set up to develop a community of researchers with an interest in migration, bringing together University researchers with government, practitioner, business and civil society groups. Its aims include:
- developing research around migration with an agenda focused on social change and social inclusion.
- providing a contact point and source of expertise for policy makers, practitioners, migrant support groups and community organisations with an interest in migration-related issues.
- developing collaboration between university migration researchers and external organisations.
- promoting migration research through the development of working papers, policy briefings, data summaries, case studies and other means.
