The Migration for Inclusive African Growth Network

Jan 2017 - Jun 2018

The Migration for Inclusive African Growth (MIAG) network recognises the role of migrants and the need for integration by bringing together researchers from multiple academic disciplines and non-academic stakeholders from public, private, and third sectors in Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Nigeria to: (a) understand how different migrant groups contribute to inclusive growth and (b) enhance this contribution by identifying practice and policy lessons and co-designing knowledge exchange tools for migrants and the local actors they engage.

This new international collaboration between UK and African partners will establish a substantial research and impact agenda that makes significant and innovative contributions to 2 of the GCRF’s priorities: Foundations for Economic Growth and Migration.

Professor Giles Mohan, Professor Parvati Raghuram and Dr Ben Lampert are the UK investigators.

This project is funded by the ESRC.
