There are 214 million migrants in the world today. Migrants leave their homes for a variety of reasons. Some flee poverty while others are escape conflict or persecution. Migrant populations are often some of the most vulnerable groups in the world. They often encounter injustices such as discrimination, violence, and exploitation. Migrants often lack access to most rights and to mechanisms for redress.
The Emigré Project seeks to raise awareness about issues affecting migrant communities. It focuses on refugees, asylum seekers, immigration detainees, and migrant workers. It advocates for equal social, political, social, and economic rights of migrants and asserts that all migrants should be able to live with dignity.
