Building on Oxford's strength in migration studies, the Oxford Diasporas Programme (ODP) includes researchers from Oxford's three migration research centres and other departments across the University. Administrative support, communications and the website are generously provided by the International Migration Institute. The programme is funded by the Leverhulme Trust from 2011 to 2015.

ODP consists of 11 projects looking at the social, economic, political and cultural impact of diasporas (transnational communities of people dispersed from their homeland) through a range of disciplinary perspectives and research methods. The projects cover case studies from both the global North and South.

We are interested in the connections between people who migrate to other countries and those who stay at home. What effects do these connections have on people in the country of origin, people in the country of destination, and on the migrants themselves?
