Migration, Diaspora & Diversity

Understanding and managing large-scale population movements is one of the most urgent long-term challenges facing humanity.

The Hugo Centre’s research aims to address fundamental questions such as: Why do people migrate? How does migration relate to broader processes of demographic transition, environmental change, socio-economic development, and political conflict? How do migrants and their communities adapt to new circumstances? What role do racism and ethnic communities play in the process of immigrant settlement? What kinds of social diversity and transnational connection arise when people uproot? What does migration mean for origin and receiving societies? How is migration managed and governed at local, national and international levels?
