DRCLien externe - Ouverture dans une nouvelle fenê
Development Research centre on Migration, Globalization and Poverty
The Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty was established in June 2003, in recognition of the complex relationship between migration and poverty. The DRC examines migration flows in which poor people themselves are most represented and how migration impacts variously on their livelihoods, rights and levels of social protection. The Development Research Centre on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty aims to promote new policy approaches that will help to maximize the potential benefits of migration for poor people, whilst minimizing its risks and costs. The centre undertakes a programme of research, capacity-building, training and promotion of dialogue to provide a strong evidential and conceptual base needed for such new policy approaches. The centre aims to share this knowledge directly with poor migrants, contributing both directly and indirectly to the elimination of poverty.The Migration DRC is funded by the UK's Department for International Development (DFID).
