The DRC Partnership
January 2010
The Migration, Globalisation and Poverty DRC has now come to an end. To find out more about its successor, the Migrating out of Poverty Research Programme Consortium (RPC), please visit www.migratingoutofpoverty.org

The Migration DRC has operated as a partnership of eight institutions located in five countries - Bangladesh, Ghana, Albania, Egypt and the UK - all working on the relationship between migration and poverty. However, under the 2008-2009 funding stream, Migration DRC research is being carried out by the 6 partner institutions in Bangladesh, Ghana and the UK.

Partnership Goals

This partnership between Southern and Northern institutions is central to the purpose of the DRC, allowing us to explore the relationship between different forms of migration and poverty from Southern perspectives. It should:

Provide an opportunity for a coalition of Southern partners to develop sustained and in-depth research on migration, globalisation and poverty.
Strengthen the capacity of all partners in the Centre, through a process of mutual learning, and by providing support to individual partners to strengthen their research and dissemination capacities.
Promote dialogue between Centre partners and a wide range of other Southern and Northern actors.
Enable a strong Southern voice to be heard in policy and academic debates over the next 5-10 years.
