In-country research on Technology, Inequality and Migration

The UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub is undertaking multidisciplinary collaborative research in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East/North Africa.

Updates on our in-country technology-focused research will be made available through this page.  The Hub is focusing on the six main corridors listed below:

  • Burkina Faso-Côte d’Ivoire (BF-CI)
  • China-Ghana (C-G)
  • Egypt-Jordan (E-J)
  • Ethiopia-South Africa (E-SA)
  • Haiti-Brazil (H-B), and
  • Nepal-Malaysia (N-M)

Each has markedly different inequality patterns and forms, a range of development challenges and diverse policy approaches enabling a rich comparative analysis of the complex and multifaceted relationships between South-South Migration (SSM), inequality and development in origin and destination countries.

The UNESCO Chair in ICT4D’s specific contributions on Technology, Inequality and Migration (TIM) will probably focus on a selection of these corridors, but we are interested in involving people more generally with interests in ways through which ICTs can reduce inequalities in migration across the world.
