The Migration Research Group 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, impacts on sending and destination countries, as well as the broad range of effects (legal, social, economic and political) and experiences of migration in various geographical regions.

We are an institutional member of IMISCOE, Europe’s largest network of scholars in the area of migration and integration. More information about IMISCOE here.

The network aims to connect migration scholars and research students at the University of Sheffield, facilitate collaboration, and showcase research and activities. Throughout the year, members organise a variety of high-profile events including lectures, conferences, workshops and networking activities that bring together academics, students, policy-makers and activists from across the UK and internationally.
