About Metropolis

​​​​​​Metropolis is the world’s largest network of researchers, government officials, international organizations, and civil society organizations in the field of migration and population diversity. Our aim is to enhance policy through empirical research and thereby to support societies that are managing the many effects of migration.



Metropolis is an apolitical organization whose work is rooted in a realistic understanding of the policy process and which seeks to create useful co-operation amongst research, policy, and civil society. Although we do not advocate specific views about how any given society ought to manage migration and diversity, we do believe that no society will succeed if it attempts simply to eradicate migration and the diversity of its population. Our basic position is that successful societies will be those that explicitly manage these phenomena for the mutual benefit of their citizens, their migrants, and their minority communities.
