Committed to understanding the regulation and transformation of movement at multiple scales in countries and communities across the global south.


The Mobility Governance Lab (MGL) explores the governance of mobility at multiple scales across the global south. It is an autonomous, critical space working to realise principles of innovation, independence, and equitable partnership. Through collaborative research, it offers original insight and perspectives to scholars, civil society, and practitioners while fostering the next generation of engaged researchers from Africa and beyond.


Initially concentrating on multiple mobilities within and from Africa, the MGL works through a series of inter-connected research themes. It positions human mobility as a heuristic providing insights into practical workings and transformations of regulatory and governance systems.
