Invitation to comment on Migration Leadership Team strategy paper on building equitable and effective partnerships for migration Research

The London International Development Centre Migration Leadership Team (LIDC-MLT) has now wrapped up a series of Global Migration Conversations, which has been running over the last two years. We partnered with LIDC-MLT to host the last of these conversations at Wits University on 27-28 June. Researchers, practitioners, policymakers, funders, working on internal and cross-border migration across disciplines in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East participated in this closed-door participatory two-day workshop  to develop common guidelines for collaborative research and develop a toolkit to guide research, practice and ethics in the field of migration.

The information from the Global Migration Conversations has fed into a strategy setting out proposals for migration research priorities for the next five years (2020-2021). The draft strategy includes agreed upon ‘Johannesburg Principles’ in the appendix of the report. The draft strategy is now available here: and we would like to invite your feedback through the website, survey monkey or via email to

Sumissions will be accepted until 20 October 2019.

We will stay in touch with the final strategy once it is launched later this year.
