What is the migration research database?

The migration research database is a searchable online database outlining research about refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants who have arrived in the Yorkshire and Humber region since 1999. The database provides summaries of featured research including aims, methodology, key issues, conclusions and recommendations.

What's the database for?

We wanted to produce a comprehensive, central, easy-to-use source of information on migration research in the Yorkshire and Humber region. We hope that this database will assist you with:

  • doing evidence based policy work
  • sharing information
  • disseminating research findings
  • avoiding duplication of research
  • sharing good practice

Information contained in the database

The database contains summaries of individual pieces of research. Our intention is that you can use these summaries to help you identify relevant pieces of research to look at yourself.

The summaries on the first version of the database were written on behalf of Migration Yorkshire by Dr Hannah Lewis [independent researcher]. The database content is copyright © Migration Yorkshire: if you'd like to reproduce any of the information contained in the database, please contact us first.  

Further information

Migration Yorkshire commissioned the database in 2009. The database builds on Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Yorkshire and Humber, 1999-2008, a review of literature commissioned by Yorkshire Futures, with assistance from Migration Yorkshire.

If you'd like to know more, or if you can suggest ways for us to improve the database, please contact Pip Tyler, our Policy and Research Manager. You can find Pip's contact details towards the top of this page, on the right hand side of your screen. Full contact details for Migration Yorkshire are available on the Contact us page.
