Leading global migration and mobility research
from the University of Sheffield

Who We Are

Who Are We?

An interdisciplinary network of scholars conducting world-leading research on global migration and mobility.

Sheffield Migration Research Group is part of IMISCOE – a network of 55 member institutions and over 1,000 scholars working in the area of migration and integration across Europe.

Our approach is informed by a broad understanding of migration encompassing motives for migration, effects on sending and destination countries, as well as the broad range of impacts (legal, social, economic and political) and experiences of migration in various geographical regions.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Sheffield MRG, or would like to find out more about how this platform can be used to showcase a diverse range of migration research activities, we would love to hear from you (see Contacts page for further details).
