It focuses on the relationship between internal and regional migration and poverty and is located in six regions across Asia, Africa and Europe. The RPC is co-ordinated by the University of Sussex.

The goal of the Migrating out of Poverty RPC is to maximise the poverty reducing and developmental impacts of migration and minimise the costs and risks of migration for poor people.
Although migration does not necessarily lead to such positive outcomes, the Migrating out of Poverty RPC works to produce research which sheds light on the circumstances in which migration can most effectively reduce poverty.
The Migrating out of Poverty programme has a new leaflet outlining our aims, the kinds of issues we look at and our work on gender in particular.
