MIGRALAC – The Latin American and Caribbean Migration Research network

MIGRALAC – The Latin American and Caribbean Migration Research network is a forum for the exchange of work and ideas among researchers and scholars who are working on a broad range of issues relating to Latin American and Caribbean migration and diasporas.

MIGRALAC aims to bring together people from different disciplines in order to identify research gaps and encourage more comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to migration to, from and within in the region.

The main aims of the MIGRALAC network are:

  • To organise three workshops a year to bring together scholars working on Latin American and Caribbean migration. These will be held at Queen Mary University of London, the University of Oxford and the University of Birmingham.
  • To create a forum for dialogue among scholars to identify interconnections, contrasts and points of comparison within their research
  • To create a space for researchers to access and share contacts, research outputs and information about events.
