Migration Matters was founded in January 2016 to address the public’s biggest conundrums and fears surrounding migration and the so-called refugee crisis.

Our free video-based courses break down commonly held preconceptions about migration and offer nuanced and solution-oriented perspectives from leading thinkers in the field: researchers, practitioners, as well as migrants and refugees themselves.

Our mission is ambitious but simple: to approach the migration debate as an open and evidence-based conversation, where no concern is ridiculed and no question dismissed.

Help us change the debate around migration by informing your family and friends about Migration Matters, sharing our videos, and contributing your questions and ideas for future course topics!



Migration Matters was founded by four women who are connected by their distinct yet common experiences of migration.



Original thinkers on migration who offer evidence-based and nuanced ideas based off of your questions and concerns.

Meet some of the star lecturers who will be part of Migration Matters. Our promise? You will understand migration better in as little as five minutes a day.
