Call for Proposals: Integrated Approaches to Human Migration/Mobility

Posted Wednesday, May 4, 2022

The RDI Fund in partnership with the Belmont Forum is working to expand research opportunities (networking, capacity building, project development and funding) for UWI researchers and other researchers throughout the region. 

This project solicits proposals that contribute to an integrated systems approach to accurately characterize migration and mobility and its intersection with Global Change, both closely related and intersecting phenomena.

Successful proposals will focus on illuminating the determinants of migration – why people move, do not move, from and to where and when, and on what time scale, in relation to Global Change processes like environmental and climate change, demographic changes, consumption patterns, energy use and land-use. Exploration of dependencies, linkages, and / or impacts between Global Change, migration and mobility, human constructs, social science and humanities approaches, and other studies are encouraged. Within this theme, there are three areas to consider including (1) data and methodology, (2) policy, and (3) human-centric approaches that integrate human perspectives and needs in all steps and aspects of a project and beyond. 

The call for proposals itself is open at ( and the capacity building and networking events have begun.
