Our Mission

We support you in holding more nuanced and evidence-based conversations about migration.

Our mission is to cultivate evidence-based dialogue on migration, belonging, and diversity, incorporating critical perspectives from academics, researchers, practitioners, the public, and migrants and refugees themselves. By developing accessible educational resources and facilitating dialogue opportunities, we aim to promote nuanced debate and meaningful exchange. This approach combats polarization and discrimination and contributes to the development of inclusive, resilient, and socially cohesive communities. We envision a world where host societies are characterized by empathy, openness, and inclusivity.
