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 links from this page.

The Hub is focusing on six main corridors:

  • 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.

MTN mobile moneyThe UNESCO Chair in ICT4D’s specific contributions on Technology, Inequality and Migration (TIM) will  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.  We intend specifically to work with our partners and corridor-leads in different continental areas, and will therefore be focusing especially on:

  • China-Ghana (C-G) and
  • Nepal-Malaysia (N-M)
