About Us

The Migrating Out of Poverty (MOOP) Research Programme Consortium focuses on the relationship between migration and poverty and is located in six regions across Asia, Africa and Europe. The Asia Research Institute (NUS) is one of the MOOP partner institutes.

The goal of the RPC is to maximise the poverty-reducing and developmental impacts of migration, and to minimise the costs and risks of migration for the poor. We seek to generate new knowledge, engage policymakers, and build capacity to understand and research migration and poverty linkages.

The partnership between the Asia Research Institute and the Consortium came to an end in mid-2017, but colleagues continue to work on the wealth of data generated throughout years of fieldwork.
