This is the section of our site that reports and shares knowledge and resources on the UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub (MIDEQ), led by Heaven Crawley of Coventry University, of which the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D is a partner.  Our interdisciplinary work focuses at the interface between technology, inequality and migration (TIM), and is led by Prof. G. “Hari” Harindranath, supported by Tim Unwin, Dr. Maria Rosa Lorini (PostDoc) and Francisca Sassetti (Postgraduate).
