Migration Research at The University of Sheffield is an interdisciplinary network of scholars conducting world-leading and high impact research on global migration and mobility. 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.

The morning of the second day will zoom in on national cases considering the politics and debate surrounding the issue of free movement and EU citizenship in comparative perspective.
