Migration Leadership Team (MLT)

The LIDC-MLT is convening a series of Global Migration Conversations in locations including Nairobi, Delhi, New York, London and Brussels, to assess the scope, achievements and challenges of the existing portfolio of global migration research; to identify strategic opportunities and priorities for further research; and to highlight best practice in the area of impact. Each conversation will bring together and provide networking opportunities for researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, migrants’ associations and arts organisations.

Findings will feed into outputs including: a web-based tool and a report identifying areas of research priorities; examples of pathways to impact that have been, or are likely to be, promising; and platforms for communication and collaboration that are likely to help bridge research, policy, and public engagement.
