The UNESCO RILA team are thrilled to be part of the largest study on human migration ever funded. The UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub (MIDEQ) unpacks the complex and multi-dimensional relationships between migration and inequality in the context of the Global South.
MIDEQ aims to transform understanding of the relationship between migration and inequality in the context of the Global South by decentring the production of knowledge about migration and its consequences away from the Global North towards those countries where most migration takes place.
Drawing on the experience and expertise of our partners across 12 countries, MIDEQ builds an evidence-based understanding of the relationships between migration, inequality and development. Our ultimate aim is to translate this knowledge into concrete policies and practices which improve the lives of migrants, their families and the communities in which they live.
The UNESCO RILA Team (Dr Gameli Tordzro, Tawona Sitholé, Naa Densua Tordzro and Prof Alison Phipps) lead the Arts, Creative Resistence and Well-being Theme which cuts across the countries and migration corridors.
Co-Director, Prof Alison Phipps launches the MIDEQ Blog with "Researching multilingually: meeting, greeting, eating" a reflection on the fact that we aren’t going to decolonise migration research by doing it in English.
