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.
