Working with us

The Migrating out of Poverty RPC is keen to work with others who also aim to maximise the poverty-reducing and developmental impacts of migration and minimise the costs and risks of migration for the poor. We engage with a range of stakeholders via four main channels: delivering training to our key stakeholder groups – policymakers, NGOs and migrant groups, researchers and media networks; undertaking consultancy projects on migration and development; operating a graduate internship scheme; and hosting a Community of Practice forum.

External training and capacity building

The Migrating out of Poverty RPC develops training for key stakeholder groups as a means of sharing our research findings, linking research findings to policy development, and influencing practice.

Consultancy projects

Members of the Migrating out of Poverty RPC are also available to undertake short term consultancy projects on migration and development themes.

Community of Practice

The Migrating out of Poverty RPC is developing a forum through which users share information and engage in discussions about migration, poverty and development.

Internship Scheme

The Migrating out of Poverty RPC operated an annual Internship Scheme. The scheme is now closed. It was open from 2013-2016 to recent graduates, postgraduate students and early career researchers with good research skills and a demonstrable interest in migration.
