Angelique Chettiparamb Wins Leverhulme International Academic Fellowship

We are delighted to announce that Dr Angelique Chettiparamb has won a Leverhulme International Academic Fellowship. During the twelve month fellowship, six months will be spent in India and based at the Centre for Migration and Inclusive Development (CMID), a research and advocacy institution in Kerala.

Angelique will be working on circular migration. Circular migration refers to population movements at sub-national or super-national scales (such as the EU), where there are little legal or institutional barriers to the movement of people. Such migrants enjoy freedom of movement, but can often be linguistically and culturally different from host populations. In order to determine their needs more clearly, Angelique will be conducting empirical work with the migrant community in Kerala, as well as conducting workshops with policymakers in the state capital.
