Transatlantic Migrant Democracy Dialogue

The Transatlantic Migrant Democracy Dialogue (TMDD) is a partnership that trains and connects immigrant and refugee leaders in the US and Europe to enable them to organise and build alliances with other civil society movements.


2017 and 2018 Democracy Camps have been organised for dozens of migrant and refugee leaders.

European migrant leadership team attends and speaks at the 2016, 2017 and 2018 US National Immigrant Integration Conference.

Drawing on its long-standing commitment and research on political participation, MPG coordinates this network to help migrant and refugee leaders to innovate and mobilise. MPG works with its European migrant leadership team and the best European and US trainers.
