#WELCOME

Migration Hub Network

The global network for asylum, migration, and refugee cooperation.

WE GATHER

We gather grassroots organisations doing exceptional work in the field of migration and inclusion in our community/co-working spaces across Europe, providing them with personalised consulting and mentorship.

WE CONNECT

Our network connects social initiatives and organisations, fostering collaboration and best practice sharing. We bridge the gap of communications between grassroot and multilateral entities: governmental or in the private sector.

WE MATCH

We help scale grassroots initiatives into sustainable entities by offering a tailor made matching system with our partners (NGOs, CSR Departments, foundations, governments, academic institutions) who already do, or want to, support newcomers.

EVENTS

Nothing beats face-to-face exchange. We bring our network together via key events across Europe throughout the year, some of them public and some catering exclusively to our Network members.

DATA ACCESS

We are currently mapping over 2000 organisations working in migration, inclusion, and refugee support across Europe. Our database will allow you to access information quickly and efficiently, streamlining the global responses to mass migration.

EXCHANGE

MHN is your first point of contact to learn more about the topic of migration, inclusion and migrant entrepreneurship. We are happy to provide one-of-a-kind guidance for your organisation, research or news outlet, or coordinate exchanges with your city.

About Us

We focus on asylum, migration, and refugee inclusion through the cooperation between grassroot and multilevel actors at our Hubs and beyond.

The Migration Hub Network creates a platform for social entrepreneurs and organisations to co-design solutions around mass migration. Our network generates physical impact within communities and connects organisations across Europe. This fosters collaboration between actors in the public and private sector in order to transform the challenges surrounding mass migration into opportunities.

Our Migration Hubs identify and host innovative social initiatives and entrepreneurs working in the field of migration and inclusion and help them thrive. We assist in scaling grassroots initiatives into sustainable entities working to empower migrants from all walks of life, by building relationships with other organisations in the field, and matching initiatives with our partners (NGOs, CSR departments, foundations, academic institutions) who already do, or want to, support new migrants and refugees.
