Research and events

The SCMR is a broad church for migration research that is theoretically informed and policy relevant. In the Sussex tradition, our distinctiveness comes through a genuinely interdisciplinary approach, a truly global focus and topical coverage, and a critical but empirically-informed stance.

Migration research at Sussex

Our research projects are funded by academic funding bodies and government departments, including, among others, the ESRC and AHRC, the FCDO, the British Academy and European Union Framework programmes.

Projects held by SCMR researchers come in many shapes and forms, and cover many different aspects of migration. We have organised a selection of SCMR projects - past and present - into six broad thematic areas, albeit recognising the artificial lines between research fields this requires.
