Managing Migration with Dignity and Fairness

Migration is not a new phenomenon yet the escalating levels of movement across the globe present an unparalleled challenge that will impact on many societies that are as yet unprepared for the scale of support required for resettlement and effective integration.  Failure to effectively integrate migrant communities can seed future community instability and violent extremism.  SCI is:

  • Working in partnership to support effective citizen, NGO and community-based activism by peer exchange and learning;
  • Promoting decision-making and policies that help build borderless solidarity and support displaced people to realise their full potential as both individuals and as community members;
  • Supporting initiatives that seek to create and safeguard international and trans-national frameworks that offer protection and a sense of security to forcibly displaced people; and
  • Partnering with independent philanthropy where we can offer added value to help deliver its vision of a world more open and accepting of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.
