This interdisciplinary research group was founded in November 2015 and is designed primarily to facilitate participatory action research in topics related to international migration.
The group involves academics from across the university who work on migration-related issues in a variety of disciplines, and key community participants who work in areas affected by migration or who offer services to migrants in East Anglia.
The purpose of the group is to facilitate collaborations between community practitioners who have identified areas in which further research is necessary and academic researchers who have access to analytical research tools. The group aims to produce high quality interdisciplinary research in migration studies that can tangibly benefit the local community and beyond.
The Migration Research Network involves researchers from Economics, Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, Law, Education, Health Sciences, the Norwich Medical School, and Development Studies.
