Aotearoa Migration Research Network

Migration is a multidimensional phenomenon that forms a prominent feature of social, cultural, economic and political life in Aotearoa/New Zealand and across the world. The Aotearoa Migration Research Network seeks to support social science research that addresses the diversity of issues involved in moving in the world: the drivers and barriers to migration, the role of borders and state control, the lives, identities and aspirations of migrants, the role of migration in communities and economies and the emergence of diverse, multicultural and transnational social formations.

The network provides a forum for established and emerging researchers as well as representatives of migrant communities, and policy makers and practitioners working with migrants to share insights from new research and create dialogue in a regular seminar series.

To be added to the mailing list and stay up-to-date with events, please contact the network conveners, Dr Jessica Terruhn ([email protected]) or Dr Shemana Cassim ([email protected]) who are Research Fellows at NIDEA at the University of Waikato.
