Our work

Migrant decision-making

As part of our work on migration, we are looking at how migrants decide when to move, where to travel to, and how to make the journey. This includes drivers for individuals leaving their home countries, events that trigger moving, and the intrinsic and extrinsic factors which influence the decision-making process both before and during the journey. We take a complexity theory approach to our work on migrant decision-making, recognising that there are a number of factors, both known and unknowable, influencing migrants’ options and decisions regarding their journeys.
