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.
