Launch of the UK Institute for Migration Research

Migrant Help and Canterbury Christ Church University are celebrating the launch of the UK Institute for Migration Research (UK-IMR). Following the signing ceremony at the Migrant Help head office in Dover on 12 March 2015, a national launch ceremony is due to take place at the Museum of the London Docklands on 21 April 2015, and the University will host an open launch event on 8 May 2015.

The UK-IMR is an extremely valuable initiative to connect education, research, and professional practice. Its mission is to bring together the professional knowledge and first-hand information of Migrant Help with the scholarly work and analytic skill of Canterbury Christ Church University. This synergy between academic and practitioner work will help create high-quality applied research and evidence-based practice.

Migration is one of the most hotly contested issues of our time. At the UK-IMR, we want our research to inform this important public debate by sharing our evidence based ideas and by encouraging further questions.
(Dr Joe Costanzo, Director of the UK Institute for Migration Research)

It is one of the explicit aims of the Institute to contribute to a more informed debate about migration in the political sphere. Significant work is also planned on local governance, asylum, and human trafficking. In the longer term, the work of the Institute is set to engage with crucial questions such as: 

  • Where do migrants from the UK come from and how has that changed over time? 
  • Why do different migrant populations come to the UK?
  • What do we know about the role played by migration in the UK economy? 
  • How are Britain’s education, health and social service systems affected by migration?
  • How well does British public opinion line up with the facts about migration?

One of the first priorities in the work of the Institute will be to contribute some first-hand facts about asylum to the political debate in the run-up to the general election on 7 May 2015.
