About the Migrating out of Poverty RPC

Migrating out of Poverty is a seven-year research programme consortium (RPC) funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) from 2010-2017. It focuses on the relationship between regional migration, internal migration and poverty and is located in six regions across Asia, Africa and Europe.

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 the poor. This includes generating new knowledge related to migration and poverty; creating new datasets; engaging policymakers, and building capacity to understand and research migration and poverty linkages. A global research programme is complemented by focused programmes in the regions of the Consortium’s core partners.

The Migrating out of Poverty RPC has been established as a partnership between research institutions in Bangladesh, UK, Ghana, Kenya, Singapore and South Africa, all working on the links between migration and development.

Day to day running of the Migrating out of Poverty RPC is undertaken by the Secretariat and the Consortium Advisory Group advises on the overall direction.

The RPC also builds on the work of the former
Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty
