International Migration and Inclusive Development

International Migration and Inclusive Development in India

The relationship between international migration and development is now a key area of global, national and regional policy making and migration and development governance, as well as a focus of academic research.

This is particularly the case in relation to India. While dominant discourses within academic and policy discussions tend to celebrate the progressive relationship between Indian migrant transnationalism, this British Academy-funded project is informed by a number of recent academic studies which emphasise the complexity and ambiguity, and call for more nuanced analyses, of the Indian international migration-development nexus.

The project is focused around a series of three UK workshops, the first of which is to be held at SOAS, University of London on 3rd November 2018  and the following two at Northumbria University on the 13th and 16th November 2018.



Workshop 1: Gender, Migration and Development in India. Saturday 3rd November 2018 10am-3.30pm, Room 4426, Russell Square Main College Building, SOAS, London. Further information on the workshop available here.

Workshop 2: Indian Transnationalism, Caste and Regional Inequality. Tuesday 13th November 2018 10am-4.00pm, Student Skills Centre 1, Main Campus Library, Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 8ST. Further information on the workshop available here.

Workshop 3: Labour and Skill Mobility From and to India: Contemporary Practice and Governance. Friday 16th November 2018 10am-4pm, Room 304E, Business Hub, Sandyford Building, Northumbria University Main Campus, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 8ST. Further information on the workshop available here.
