Migration Matters was founded in January 2016 by Julia Karmo, Sophia Burton, Elina Ribakova, and Kelly Miller. It is supported by the London School of Economics' Institute for Global Affairs and from a grant from Advocate Europe. Migration Matters supports the integration of migrants and refugees by breaking down the public's most commonly held preconceptions about migration and the refugee crisis. It offers free mini-MOOCs with nuanced and solution-oriented perspectives from leading thinkers in the field: researchers, practitioners, and migrants and refugees themselves and address topics such as how and why migration happens, fears around migration like security and culture, what migration really does to our economies, and how to manage integration in diverse societies. The aim is to make the conversation about migration and refugees more open and evidence-based.
