The Migration Lab has been enabled by University intellectual and financial investment, in order to upscale the work currently carried out by the networks of scholarship at the University, to enable new areas of research to emerge and broaden the scope for impactful work of considerable importance to be nurtured.

The vision for the HCRI has been inspired by the need to conduct rigorous, in-depth research and analysis on the impact and outcomes of contemporary and historical crises and conflicts. HCRI is a truly multidisciplinary centre bringing together, existing expertise from the Faculty of Humanities (including social sciences) and the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences, and offers a flexible approach to the provision of research and taught programmes so as to cater for the current needs of the aid industry as well as prepare the next generation of crisis response researchers and practitioners. The GDI addresses global inequalities in order to promote a socially-just world in which all people, including future generations, are able to enjoy a decent life. Promoting social justice is at the heart of GDI’s ambition and is connected to our core values of inclusivity, responsibility, equity and sustainability.
