Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Incredible performance by Noyam African Dance Institute to mark official start of @UKRI_News @GCRF #SouthSouthMigration Inequality and Development Hub. Such a powerful moving representation of migrant journeys and experiences. Thank you @GTordzro @alison_phipps Nii Tete and all!
The beautiful building of International House, home to @cms_moop, provided the perfect setting for this performance and its metaphor of the ‘corridor’. Thank you Prof Joseph Teye and all at @univofghana for hosting us and for the generosity of your welcome Image

Hanging out the washing...what are the key messages and ideas the #UKRI #GCRF #SouthSouthMigration,Inequality and Development Hub should be communicating? Some fun to end a long first day working through our research design, ethics, data management and communications strategy Image

Off on a West African adventure! First up @cms_moop in Ghana to join #MIASA Fellowship Group on Migration, Mobility and Forced Displacement followed by first meeting of our newly funded #UKRI #GCRF #SouthSouthMigration, Inequality and Development Hub with nearly 40 partners Image
Of course I’m only able to do this because I’m white and privileged. Sadly my colleagues from around world are unable to travel with same freedoms and ease. It’s complex and expensive to get visas to UK even for world-leading scholars in the field Image
That’s just one of (many) reasons why all of our #UKRI #GCRF #SouthSouthMigration, Inequality and Development meetings will be held in countries of #GlobalSouth. We need to do everything we can to avoid reproducing inequalities in access to resources and power in the Hub’s work

Its official...the next five years of my life will be spent as Director of a new @UKRI_News @GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub focusing on relationships between #migration #inequality and process of #development across 12 countries…
Migration between countries in Global South accounts for nearly half of all international migration, 70% in some places, contributing to delivery of #SDGs by creating opportunities for work and the transfer of resources, knowledge and skills. But... @Tanjabastia and others have shown, there is a relationship between #migration and #inequality. Benefits of #SouthSouthmigration are undermined by inequalities in migration opportunities and by limited and unequal access to rights for migrants and families. Meanwhile...
