Civil Society

The myriad of activities carried out by migration-related associations, civil society initiatives and group networks testify to the diversity and multiple perspectives that are present in societies shaped by migration. These activities make it possible for people from different communities to speak on their own behalf. Ensuring adequate representation and participation are important democratic prerequisites in this context. Our digital media archive compiles and systematizes best practice examples.
