Migrants' Rights Network

Migrants’ Rights Network is an innovative UK- based NGO working and campaigning for the rights of all migrants

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Vision

    To bring about a world in which people are acknowledged as having sufficient rights to ensure they are in a good position to anticipate and manage the risks associated with living and working in a country where they do not have citizenship status.

    Purpose

    To be the sector leader in brokering conversations and negotiations between migrant community organisations and policy-makers, politicians and other authorities and influential bodies aiming to better understand what migration means for a modern society in a globalised world.

    Mission

    - To work in collaboration with migrant community groups to build networks and partnerships which amplify the voice of such groups in their dealings with public authorities and other influential stakeholders.
    - To assist migrant community groups in conveying crucial and timely messages into the wider public conversation about immigration policy in such a way as to influence the tone of the discussion in a way which is sympathetic to migrants.
    - To facilitate discussions directly with politicians and policy makers and key stakeholders in ways which encourage open and broadminded engagement with the issues.

  • Aims
