At Ashoka, we know that people on the move are changemakers, eager to contribute to their new communities. When this reality is acknowledged and integrated into initiatives’ design and societal perspectives, the effectiveness and power of transformation increases exponentially.  

This perspective, of course, is not always at the forefront of conversations on migration and refugee movements. Indeed, we’re at an important crossroads: we either allow the divisive perspective on migration to exacerbate globally, or we forge a different path – one in which people on the move are understood in their full complexity, and valued in their unique contributions to the problems societies are facing.  

As the world changes at a faster and faster pace, the feeling that people are moving across the world more than ever before and that this trend needs to be addressed, or at least understood better is prevalent among different groups and constituencies.
