Migration and Culture

The importance of Migration and Culture to migration research and policy-making is reflected in the work of the UNU Migration Network. The research projects falling within this focus area examine the crucial contribution of migrants to culture, as well as the challenges for cultural understanding that arise from human mobility. Culture is a key consideration in discussions around regional integration and regional connections, in the interpretation of economic and environmental factors, and must be central to the development of migration governance. Culture is also an important factor in terms of health and other social policy areas affecting migrants.
