Open and inclusive societies  


MPG wants to see open and inclusive societies in which all members - those with and without an immigrant background - have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities and a commitment to contribute to the economic, social, cultural and civic life of our diverse societies.


MPG's mission is to contribute to lasting and positive change resulting in open and inclusive societies by stimulating well-informed European debate and action on migration, equality and diversity, and enhancing European co-operation between and amongst governmental agencies, civil society organisations and the private sector.

We articulate this mission through four primary activities focused on harnessing the advantages of migration, equality and diversity and responding effectively to their challenges:

  • Gathering, analysing and sharing information
  • Creating opportunities for dialogue and mutual learning
  • Mobilising and engaging stakeholders in policy debates
  • Establishing, inspiring and managing expert networks


Commitment to the cause: each member of the MPG team holds both a professional and personal commitment to the issues of migration, equality and diversity.

Social entrepreneurship: we value our agility in creating innovative projects that further our vision

Partnerships: we value partnerships recognising that they are key to the achievement of our vision

Rigorous analysis: we pursue our vision through carefully researched and argued reports, strategic tools and recommendations.

Independence: we seek and maintain relationships with a broad spectrum of stakeholders, ensure diversified sources of income and implement projects and programmes in accordance with our vision and values.
