Experts from Royal Holloway have joined a £20m research hub to explore how migration affects inequality and development in less developed countries.

Funding for the project has been provided by the UK Government's Research and Innovation (UKRI) group.

The money will go towards a newly set up Hub that will map, record and draw attention to the experiences of those who move, thereby providing greater insight into the challenges associated with international migration.

Royal Holloway's Dr G. Hari Harindranath and Professor Tim Unwin are among the experts who will investigate how migration contributes to the delivery of UN Sustainable Development Goals, such as ending poverty and reducing inequality.

Dr Harindranath said: "The Global Challenges Research Fund is a major priority for Royal Holloway and I am delighted and honoured to be able to support the School of Management and the university in this regard."

"The scale and scope of the GCRF funding means we have a unique opportunity to work in close partnership with researchers and practitioners from around the world, on a complex and challenging topic of global significance, over an extended period of time. And this of course presents significant potential for impact."
