People are constantly on the move; we move within and between countries and continents. That movement can be driven by many factors, including employment, family, conflict and natural disasters. When people move, there are impacts on both their destination and the place they left behind. These impacts can encompass everything from the disruption of local social networks to housing market shifts to humanitarian crises.
Our teams work across several areas of migration and the associated impacts in origin and destination countries. This section focuses on our international development work, but our researchers maintain a broader perspective: the Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network (GRAMNet) supports and connects researchers across the university who work on this very important topic, including within the UK.
In this section you can learn more about the migration projects we are currently working on in the international development context. Please also check out GRAMNet for more information about the network and the events they run to highlight issues surrounding migration.
