Middlesex University’s press release is available here:
From 7 to 11 June 2015 I was in Malta and Sicily for the launch of MOMPA, the Mediterranean Observatory on Migration Protection and Asylum. Created in response to the increasing flows of migrants and asylum seekers and record levels of deaths across the Mediterranean, MOMPA is a new organisation based in Malta that seeks to inform and develop policy, recommendations, and enhance cooperation in the areas of migration and asylum in the Mediterranean and the European Union.

The new book I’ve co-edited with Louise Ryan and Umut Erel is out now!

Migrant Capital presents state-of-the-art empirical, theoretical and methodological perspectives on migration, networks, social and cultural capital, exploring the ways in which these bodies of literature can inform and strengthen each other. In so doing, it brings the theoretical and methodological dimensions into dialogue with each other. The migrants discussed in the book are ethnically and socio-economically diverse and have a range of migratory trajectories and experiences. Various types of networks are looked at and compared: intra-ethnic and inter-ethnic; locally-based, national and transnational; informal and formal, including migrant community organisations. Migrant Capital is international in focus drawing on research from Australia, North America, the Caribbean and across Europe. Migration research often focuses on individual cases, thereby running the risk of over-emphasising the peculiarities of particular migrant groups and locations, leading to criticisms of empirical nationalism. The range of case studies in this collection can open up a comparative perspective in order to contribute to a broader theoretical framework rooted in empirical research.

SPRC Roundtable Workshop – Friday 13 June 2014
This event will see the launch of two reports by the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) at Middlesex University and use this as an opportunity to facilitate a discussion around how recent trends have jeopardised the existence of migrant, minority, women (and more generally third sector) organisations, at least in their traditional forms.
