The Hugo Centre’s work addresses the global challenge of population change.
Our research advances basic knowledge and informs public debate and decision making around the world. We integrate insights from different academic disciplines and partnerships with community, industry and government organizations. We focus on four interlinked themes:
Migration, Diaspora & Diversity How do patterns of human mobility, social difference, and cross-border connectedness shape cities, economies and nation-states?
Demography & the Life Course How do demographic shifts such as population growth and ageing alter the nature of work, family life, and peoples’ relationships to the built environment?
Population Processes & Environmental Change How do population dynamics interact with processes of transformation in our physical environment?
Social Applications of GIS How can we describe and explain population change through state-of-the-art spatial analysis and geographical information systems?
