The University of Ghana led by Dr. Leander Kandilige and Prof. Joseph Teye of the Centre for Migration Studies (CMS), University of Ghana and its consortium of eight partners have won an EU Horizon 2020 grant of €5 Million to implement the project titled “MIGNEX” (i.e. Aligning Migration Management and the Migration–Development Nexus) for a period of five years.

Other consortium partners include: Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) [Lead Institution], University of Oxford, Maastricht University, ODI, OECD, Lahore University of Management Sciences, Koc University, and Samuel Hall Consulting Company.

The project aims to forge new connections between two policy fields: how migration is regulated, and how migration and development affect each other. Such connections are essential for developing a more effective, coherent and sustainable approach to the challenges and opportunities that migration brings.

CMS and the University of Ghana congratulates Dr. Leander Kandilige and Prof. Joseph Teye for this achievement
