Cluster Overview

The Migration Cluster focuses on any issue relating to the movement of people, including:

  • causes and consequences of displacement arising from conflict, natural disaster, climate change, poverty, trafficking and smuggling;
  • theories and ethics of migration;
  • refugees; asylum seekers; stateless people and the internally displaced;
  • labour migration;
  • asylum, nationality, immigration and emigration laws and policies and their impact on the individual;
  • “crimmigation” and the role of police, policing and prosecutions;
  • comparative law;
  • the role of stakeholders in ‘managing migration’;
  • data and displacement;
  • the ethics of research on migration.

The aim of the cluster is to provide a useful forum in which to discuss ideas, work in progress, and grant proposals, and to present work and hear from invited guest speakers.
