    • Welcome to Introduction to Evidence Cafés for migration

      Migration can be a sensitive issue, and it cuts across many areas of social life and affects many aspects of policy. Some people have very fixed views about whether migration is a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ thing and many migrants lack the full rights that other citizens enjoy. So, migration is both a contentious issue and one that needs careful management. But how do you meaningfully understand all these different views? How can these different evidence sources be valued, understood and integrated? How can people engaged in migration policy and practice make better decisions using this evidence? Evidence Cafés are one possible way to help with these potentially trick conversations around migration, from a range of perspectives.

      The course will introduce you to the use of Evidence Cafés, what they involve and demonstrate their application to a range of migration issues. On completing the course, you should feel more confident is using Evidence Cafés in your own work.

      Please note: it is recommended you view this course on a laptop or desktop computer to experience full functionality.
