Who we are
The UCL MRU Migration Conference is organised by the MSc Global Migration students on an annual basis to provide a unique opportunity for young researchers to contribute to contemporary migration studies. Our mission is to create a platform for both Master’s and PhD students to engage in an interdisciplinary exchange on important and complex migration topics that have also taken center stage in national and international debates.
Founded in 1988, the Migration Research Unit (MRU) undertakes research, teaching and consultancy on migration. Members of the MRU are all based in the geography department and their research focuses broadly on diasporas, transnationalism, asylum and refugees, national and international migration policies, measuring and mapping migration and ethnicity, theorising mobilities, development and migration.
