As a small team, we receive a high volume of requests and unfortunately do not have the capacity to respond to student inquiries for university projects.
Academic and research enquiries
At the Migrants’ Rights Network, everything we do is guided by lived experience. We often advise academics and provide our expertise at panels. We use collaborative activism and legal avenues to create societal change, extending beyond the individual impact on migrants’ lives, to tackle oppression at its source.
We are a diverse team majority led by migratised people and People of Colour, essentially first and second generation migrants but there are also numerous other intersecting identities in our team including religion, nationality, age, gender, sexuality and those with disabilities. These wide ranging identities and experiences inform our work and expertise, particularly our work on language and how we challenge established norms and narratives.
As a small team, we have limited resources and capacity, so we can only assist academics and PHD students, not undergraduate and masters students. If you are interested in working with us and wish to invite us to participate in your project or study, please get in touch with our Policy team by emailing [email protected]
If you need help
The Migrants’ Rights Network does not provide legal advice. Our work concentrates on policy analysis, network development and advocacy; while we provide information and commentary on this website this does not, and is not intended to, amount to legal advice.
Below are a few links to other organisations and agencies that maybe able to provide you with direct support and assistance.
- If you need immigration advice please try the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association finder.
- The Law Society also has a register of Asylum and Immigration Solicitors.
- The Chartered Institute of Housing has advice on Housing Rights.
