Mixed Migration Centre and DRC Danish Refugee Council
While MMC is part of, hosted, and governed by DRC, it acts as an independent source of data, analysis and research on mixed migration. The position of MMC does not necessarily reflect the position of DRC and is not influenced by donors or host states. The MMC will maintain a strong level of intellectual freedom. While MMC and DRC are preferred partners where possible and relevant, MMC also engages with a larger audience of policy makers, practitioners, researchers and journalists working on migration
MMC focuses on a wide variety of mixed migration dynamics in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America. With the large majority of MMC’s staff based in various regional hubs around the world, MMC maintains a strong focus on intra-regional and ‘south-south’ migration, while enabling cross-regional collaboration and a route-based approach to data collection, research, analysis and policy and programmatic engagement.
