Back to Projects


This project aims to help the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) develop its programme of work on sustainably reducing poverty in the United Kingdom. It will first involve a review of the existing research on the impact of migration on poverty in the UK. It will then examine the various policy options for a poverty-reduction strategy informed by this evidence, and will set out directions for future research to address the many remaining evidence gaps.
