Welcome to Introduction to Evidence Cafés for migration. The aim of this course is to introduce you to the concept of Evidence Cafés and how they can be used when discussing migration to facilitate knowledge exchange. Migration can be a sensitive issue and it cuts across many areas of life. As such, it affects many aspects of policy. Some people have very fixed views about whether migration is good or bad, and many migrants lack the full rights that other citizens enjoy. So migration is both a contentious issue and one that needs careful management, which is why we have developed this short course. Evidence Cafés are one possible way to help with these potentially tricky conversations around migration, from a range of perspectives.


This course aims to:

  • Provide an understanding of Evidence Cafés as a tool for knowledge exchange with migration issues.
  • Define how to apply this approach to exploring the issue of migration.
  • Explore and analyse the areas and issues associated with migration including different stakeholders, communication and collaboration.
  • Evaluate the different evidence types that can be used to support knowledge exchange.
  • Initiate ideas on the role of discussion objects that can be used to support discussion.
