Partners: SCMR/IDS, Sussex, UK

SCMR Logo The Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) at the University of Sussex, Brighton , has a strong experience of research on migration issues and has sought to influence both understanding of migration and the policies that affect migrants. In the past, the centre

has conducted policy-oriented research for the UK Home Office, DFID and IOM. SCMR also provides doctoral and masters-level training in Migration Studies, and published the internationally-recognised Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies.

The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex, Brighton was established in 1966 and is an internationally-renowned centre for research consultancy, policy advice, teaching, technical
assistance and information services on development. Key IDS research themes are Poverty and Social Policy, Globalisation, Governance, Environment, Participation, and Health and Social Change. In the context of the DRC, the experience of IDS staff in work on poverty reduction, livelihoods and globalisation will be a particular strength.
