The Group aims to cover all aspects of migration research, including empirical and theoretical work.  It will promote work which not only focuses on recent flows of people across spaces, but also foreground historical perspectives, and issues of identity, culture and the politics of migration. It will cover and contribute to studies of diaspora and transnationalism. 

We aim to advance theoretical and methodological work, promote comparative studies, enhance critical, historical and political understandings of migration and diasporas. In so doing, we will provide a UK platform through which scholars can engage in debate and exchange of ideas.
