policy and research

Our position at the interface of migration enforcement, gender issues, and human rights allows us to deliver cutting-edge, practical policy analysis and research. We bring together perspectives from different contexts in order to contribute to global debates on human rights and migration issues. 

We are experienced researchers and educators. We provide scoping on domestic and international developments regarding human rights, migration governance, and gender issues. We assist with seminars, public legal education, and workshops for broad audiences.  

project development 

We work with teams and organizations to generate new ideas, frame collaborations, and build roadmaps to implementation. We do not shy away from big problems and big thinking.  We build strategies to manage a complex portfolio, implement large projects, help shape systems, and facilitate change. 

We listen carefully and produce thoughtful guidance to foster innovation and establish data-based decision-making when designing projects. We help organizations develop and write grants, evaluate their progress, and measure their impact.
