#StandUp4Migrants

We believe there is an urgent need to question and change the way we speak about migrants and migration.

When migrants are portrayed in a negative light, their human rights are heavily impacted. They are discriminated, excluded and dehumanised. Communities also become divided.

How we speak about migrants and migration – the narrative – therefore plays a fundamental role in guaranteeing equality and the human rights of migrants.
