This group explores migratory phenomena in all their complexity, ranging from traditional cross-border movements to new forms of transnational flows and exchanges.
- Dr Leah Bassel, Co-Founder and Convenor
The Leicester Migration Network was co-founded in 2012 by Dr Leah Bassel, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology, and Dr Marc Scully who is now a lecturer at the University of Loughborough.
This is an exciting initiative that brings together interdisciplinary perspectives and enables innovative and ground-breaking scholarship that cuts across conventional lines of enquiry.
Our location in Leicester, a city that continues to be shaped by its unique history of migration, provides a distinctive opportunity for academic research that is developed in partnership with members of the community.
