Our Impact

At Migration Matters, our story began with a simple yet powerful belief: that migration is an integral part of our societies and that nuanced, evidence-based conversations can lead to more inclusive and resilient communities. Our interdisciplinary team, composed of migrants, women, and allies from various fields, has dedicated itself to breaking down misconceptions and changing narratives about migration through accessible educational content and dialogue opportunities.

Since our inception, we’ve made significant strides in reshaping the discourse on migration and diversity. With over 400,000 views and counting on our videos and a growing community of approximately 20,000 subscribers across platforms, our message is resonating widely. We’ve produced over 150 videos and 10 series, each designed to challenge preconceptions and promote a deeper understanding of migration’s complexities.

We are fortunate to have collaborated over the years with world-renowned academics and researchers like Dr. Naika Foroutan, Dr. François Gemenne, Dr. Hein de Haas, Dr. Nando Sigona, and Dr. Anna Triandafyllidou, ensuring our content is grounded in cutting-edge research.

Our efforts have spanned five continents, working with more than 25 partners in education, academia, civil society, media, and advocacy to amplify our impact. Our content has been featured in nine film festivals and shown in countless classrooms, workshops, online platforms, and screenings. Together with our partners, we’ve directly reached over 300 journalists, 500 teachers, and 5,000 students from Canada to Poland to Japan, influencing the next generation’s perspective on migration and diversity.


At Migration Matters, we believe in the strength of community and the power of dialogue. Our impact is measured not just in numbers, but in the conversations sparked, the minds opened, and the policies influenced. We remain committed to the idea that informed and empathetic discussions on migration can transform societies for the better.

I was at the dinner table with my brother who is pretty anti-migration. I used an argument from one of your videos on borders that explains how walls can interrupt circulation and it was the only thing I said that made him reconsider his perspective.

I have been trying to learn about the Roma ever since I moved to Europe and this is a great introduction to put their 'otherness' in perspective.

Refugee is deeper than categorization. Something I picked up to think about from you.
