Migration is one of the defining human rights issues of our time.
How societies respond to it will determine the resilience of welcoming communities and the realization of migrants’ human potential for decades to come. SCI believes we can only secure inclusive, fair and peaceful communities if we address the challenges of migration.
Our migration work seeks to influence public policy and transform the way societies welcome and integrate migrants and refugees.
We are committed to supporting civil society activism and advocacy that responds positively to the opportunities and challenges raised by migration.
Our Areas of Focus
Strengthening Migration Advocates
SCI secures social change by helping advocates to be more effective.
Migration advocates need improved capacity, sophistication and connection in order to succeed while working in a climate that is often increasingly hostile to their goals.
SCI strengthens migration advocates through:
- One-on-one Mentoring
- Capacity Building
- Learning Exchanges
Changing the Narrative
Migration narratives influence society’s common understanding of the issue. They often set the terms of debate and wider policy.
Producing and amplifying inclusive stories encourages people to support compassionate and effective integration policies.
SCI changes the narrative through:
- Capacity Building
- Communication Research
- Communication Strategies
We support and work with individuals seeking to improve migration policies and practices.
