CMIR works for the rights of Nepalese migrant workers and their families.
Center for Migration and International Relations (CMIR) is a not-for-profit institute thriving to ensuring rights of migrant workers and their families are respected, guaranteed and fulfilled. We are a dedicated and dynamic team of returnee migrant workers, migrant rights' activists and researchers having a long-time involvement history in the field of migration and development. In Nepal, CMIR is the first institute of involving all three groups: returnee migrant workers, migrant rights activists and researchers into a common platform. This enables CMIR to better understand the multi-faceted impacts of migration into different aspects and dynamics of the society and thus, help to come with concrete humanitarian actions, policy recommendations and enduring advocacy efforts in national, regional and international level.
CMIR is also the first and only institute in Nepal to involving international relations as a part of study and advocacy of migration dynamics. Though study and advocacy on bettering international relations makes an obvious impact on migration governance and patterns for any given country, CMIR explicitly focuses on including international relations as strong component to study and advocate for guaranteeing rights of migrant workers and their families.
