Migration Network Event

Migration Network Event

The inaugural event of the Migration Fellows' Network will take place on 5 September 2018 at the Migration Museum in London. It will aim to bring together Fellows with an interest in migration to spark new partnerships and ideas to better understand how we can all live well together.

Migration has never been talked about more and understood less – being an area both of high public and policy interest, but also a polarising issue which can often be seen through a narrow lens of numbers and front pages.

This event hopes to bring together the wide range of Churchill Fellows from disparate disciplines and backgrounds who have travelled to investigate different aspects of this phenomenon; both its rich history and the lessons this has for what is happening here and now in our communities and into the future. The event will hear a range of stories from the travels of Fellows and offer the opportunity for discussion and connection.

The event is open to all current Churchill Fellows with an interest in migration and prospective Fellows looking to apply for a Fellowship in the Migration: Living Well Together  category (supported by the Linbury Trust.) It will offer a chance for prospective Fellows to meet current Fellows and discuss their ideas before the deadline for applications on 18 September 2018.

The event is kindly hosted by the Migration Museum and will offer a final chance to view the ‘No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that changed Britain’ before the exhibition closes on 9 September.
