Press release issued: 21 June 2016

WUN Forms Strategic Alliance with International Organization for Migration (IOM)

On 2 April, the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) and the Global Migration Data Analysis Centre in Berlin of the International Organization for Migration (IOM GMDAC) signed a collaboration agreement at the second WUN Migration Conference in Maastricht. The purpose of this alliance is to fill key gaps in the global knowledge base on migration in order to better inform global policy and practice. Through a number of combined activities, WUN and IOM GMDAC aim to work together over the coming years to improve the quality of migration data, analysis and research.

University of Bristol researcher Ann Singleton has been instrumental in putting this agreement together and will be working to drive it forward in the future. 

Ann is the academic lead on the WUN Research  group 'Migration, Development and Global Transformations (MDGT)' funded by the WUN Reserach Development Fund.
