Migration Policy Institute

Program support
For a European project on migration and integration.
The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) launched a three-year initiative in 2004 to address migration issues in Europe, one of the most challenging environments in which to implement successful immigration and integration policies. This work grew out of the Athens Migration Policy Initiative (2002), a task force of leading European and international policy experts and practitioners. The first two years of support have enabled MPI to make further inroads as a central voice in the European migration debate, ensuring that politicians, policy makers and the public have access to rigorously researched and thoughtfully presented policy options. Through 2007, MPI’s European work will focus on producing a report highlighting best practices in immigrant integration and on sponsoring a high-profile independent task force on immigrant integration.
The Migration Policy Institute is an independent, non-partisan think tank dedicated to studying the movement of people worldwide. MPI provides analysis, development and evaluation of migration and refugee policies at the local, national and international levels. Its work is organized around four themes: migration management, refugee protection and international humanitarian response, borders, and immigrant settlement and integration. MPI was a program of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for ten years and became an independent organization in 2001.
