Our Mission

We identify, analyze, and report on challenges preventing the implementation of good migration governance. In order to develop best practices from a legal perspective, we consult with decision-makers, frontline workers, and academics, as well as people with lived experiences of migration. We have expertise in migration enforcement at home and abroad; alternative modes of enforcement; procedural justice for refugees and asylum seekers; and gender guidelines for working with newcomers.
