Through the provision of credible evidence and expertise on mixed migration, MMC aims to support agencies, policymakers and practitioners to make well-informed decisions, to positively impact global and regional migration policies, to contribute to protection and assistance responses for people on the move and to stimulate forward thinking in the sector responding to mixed migration.

MMC focuses on 6 core regions, with regional teams in each of these: Eastern Africa & Yemen; North Africa; West Africa; the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. Read more about the MMC here: www.mixedmigration.org. The MMC is part of the Danish Refugee Council.

Since 2014, MMC has been implementing the Mixed Migration Monitoring Mechanism initiative (4Mi), a growing network of monitors stationed in key migration hubs in more than 20 countries along 7 major migration routes, who are interviewing refugees and migrants on the move on a continuous basis. Read more about 4Mi here:

http://www.mixedmigration.org/4mi/. 4Mi is MMCs flagship project and provides the data which is key to the three overall objectives of MMC:

• To increase the understanding of migration

• To contribute to policy development and debate

• To contribute to evidence-based responses for people on the move

While managed and implemented by MMC regional hubs through different 4Mi programmes, MMC and DRC aim to further develop 4Mi into a global data collection tool, allowing for standardized data collection and comparative analysis across various mixed migration routes globally.
