Migration Policy Institute (MPI)
The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit think-tank dedicated to analysis of the movement of people worldwide. Headquartered in Washington, DC and with offices in Manila, New York and Brussels, MPI provides analysis, development, and evaluation of migration and refugee policies at the local, national, and international levels. It aims to meet the rising demand for pragmatic and thoughtful responses to the challenges and opportunities that large-scale migration, whether voluntary or forced, presents to communities and institutions in an increasingly integrated world. MPI is guided by the philosophy that international migration needs active and intelligent management. When such policies are in place and are responsibly administered, they bring benefits to immigrants and their families, communities of origin and destination, and sending and receiving countries.
In January 2013, CFO and MPI signed a memorandum of agreement towards strengthening CFO’s capability in the conduct of research and policy analysis on migration and development, while helping MPI establish its regional presence in Asia.
