Migrants’ ability to move, work, and seek protection depends on their ability to access rights, resources and other opportunities for social and political integration. Whilst there are active civil society movements across the Global South, organisational efforts targeting migrants remain rare, and evaluations or assessments of such initiatives even more so.

Building on the findings of our research, this theme explores the ways in which access to resources, social networks and political opportunities play a key role in migrant mobilisation across the 12 countries. We work with local and migrant-led organisations in each context to reduce inequalities associated with migration.

Our research examines:

  • Different forms of formal and informal political participation, organisation and resistance that can challenge assumptions about migration and inequality at country and regional levels.
  • The role of trade unions, international organisations, transnational alliances and other mobilising structures and mechanisms.
  • The relationship between migrant organising and wider solidarity building within, across and beyond the corridors.
