Human Movement - Update

last modified Nov 18, 2020 11:49 AM

Dear All,

I am writing with a brief update about the Centre for Global Human Movement team structure. As indicated when the Centre was founded in 2018, it was always anticipated that we would think about succession planning in relation to governance arrangements for the Centre. I will therefore be relinquishing my role as Centre Director.

I am delighted to announce that Dr Tugba Basaran has agreed to take on the role of Executive Director of the Centre, with Dr Jenny Mander and Dr Yongcan Liu becoming the Centre’s new Co-Directors.

My long association with the Centre, from its inception as CAMMIGRES and more recent iteration as the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement is not coming to an end however, as I have agreed to set up and Chair an Advisory Committee to support the Centre looking forwards. I look forward to the next phase of development for the Centre.

I am sure that you will join me in wishing Tugba, Jenny and Yongcan all the best as they take on their new roles.

With all good wishes,

Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe
