OU Migration

Migration research at The Open University

About us

OU Migration brings together researchers from across The Open University who work on migration. It brings together activities, projects and people who have built a vibrant research environment on the topic. The programme of activities includes theoretical research on migration, contributions to policy debates and community activism and capacity sharing with migrants and migrant organisations worldwide.
