Migration and displacement in Horn of Africa

The current migration and refugee crisis remains at the forefront of European debate and discussion and this research will be crucial for understanding the factors behind population movement. In a time of unprecedented global challenges, research like this continues to demonstrate the importance of our work and how our research tackles some of today’s complex global challenges.

The Research and Evidence Facility will work closely with a consortium involving SOAS, the University of Oxford's International Migration Institute and Sahan Research, a Nairobi-based think tank.

Dr Oliver Bakewell of Oxford IMI will lead research on migration and development, and Mr Vincent Chordi, SOAS MSc Violence Conflict and Development alumnus and long-time official with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, will lead the research on conflict and governance. They will be supported by Communications Officer Dr Idil Osman, who will be based at SOAS.
