Migration in the Asia region

The ‘Migration in the Asia Region’ research theme brings together colleagues who research migration and mobilities from the School of Arts and Social Sciences at the Malaysia campus. As a collective of Asia specialists, their interdisciplinary research engages with different forms of mobile transformation happening in the region and beyond. Individually, the projects focus on different South-South migration patterns and specifically pay close attention to exploring how marginalised communities are impacted by labour conditions, migration policies, racism, and homophobia.
