The Migration Programme of the UNU International Institute for the Alliance of Civilizations will focus on the implications of migratory movements in both the source and destination countries and, more specifically, on the coexistence and the development of societies as a result of these movements. It will consider, among other things, coordinated immigration policy strategies; the migration, culture, and development nexus; and questions of leadership in the management of migratory flows. Some projects will be undertaken in collaboration with the Autonomous University of Barcelona. This research agenda will be further developed after the appointment of the Institute’s first director.
The focal point for this programme is Prof. Dr. Parvati Nair.
