Migration Research Network
Public Group 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Migration is a multidimensional phenomenon that forms a prominent feature of social, cultural, economic and political life in Aotearoa-New Zealand and across the world. The migration research network seeks to support social science research that addresses the diversity of issues involved in moving in the world: the drivers and barriers to migration, the role of borders and state control, the lives, identities and aspirations of migrants, the role of migration in communities and economies and the emergence of diverse, multicultural and transnational social formations.
The migration research network provides a forum for established and emerging researchers as well as representatives of migrant communities, and policy makers and practitioners working with migrants to share insights from new research and create dialogue in a regular seminar series.
The network is co-convened by Dr Francis Collins who is a Professor of Geography at the University of Waikato and Dr Jessica Terruhn who works as a Senior Researcher on the CaDDANZ (Capturing the Diversity Dividend of Aotearoa New Zealand) research team at Massey University in Auckland
