Migration Policy Center
Migration Policy Center (MPC) was founded in 2015 within the scope of MMU with the purpose of providing an interworking platform for the relevant stakeholders on the topics such as migration, asylum, social cohesion, and urban belonging.
MPC’s activities are shaped by long-term policy recommendations and guidance of the MMU Migration Committee. Having been the first migration committee established at the local level in Turkey, Migration Committee consists of mayors from different cities and political parties which are represented in MMU General Assembly.
MMU has also established Migration Platform in order to facilitate and institutionalize communication among its members. Migration Platform consists solely of representatives of the departments of MMU’s member municipalities working for refugees and migrants.
