Hundreds of millions of people are on the move. There are probably as many misconceptions about migrants as there are migrants. We aim to curate an informed discussion on research that shows the multifaceted reality of migration. Asylum seekers, students, workers seeking better conditions, refugees…the baggage they carry, the barriers they face, the effect their movement has on the homes they leave and the homes they seek are among the most urgent questions of our time.

Our editorial line

"Today’s development research mixes scientific endeavor with technical advocacy. Scholars are encouraged to contribute research-based solutions to development challenges, and are expected to distill recommendations from their analysis and evidence. They are also advised to communicate the implications of their findings in ways that can reach policy-makers and practitioners most effectively, and then demonstrate their impact on decisions and outcomes."

By Founding Editors , "Editorial – Mobilizing development research to address global challenges"
