UK / InternationalThe Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty is funded by DfID, one of the foremost donor agencies seeking to understand the impact of migration on development. DfID was the first to publish a report on migration and development. The UK partners of the DRC Migration have been closely involved with the Global Forum on Migration and Development, and Richard Black (DRC Migration, University of Sussex) will be coordinating the panel on ‘Strengthening data and research tools on migration and development’.

The UK branch of the partnership manages the activities and research of the DRC Migration from its headquarters at the Sussex Centre on Migration Research, University of Sussex and coordinates a broad range of projects, which includes the Global Migrants Origin Database and the Migration in National Surveys Catalogue.
