Our main goal

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.
