Migration Summit 2023


The Migration Summit is a month-long global convening organized by the MIT Refugee Action Hub (ReACT), Na’amal and Karam Foundation designed to build bridges between diverse communities of displaced learners, universities, companies, nonprofits and NGOs, social enterprises, foundations, philanthropists, researchers, policymakers and employers around the key challenges and opportunities for refugee and migrant communities. 


The event ran its first edition in April 2022 which explored the theme of “Education and Workforce Development in Displacement” with +40 live events, +150 panelists and +900 participants from all around the world. 


The second edition of the event in April 2023 focused on the theme “Co-creating Pathways to Learning, Livelihood, and Dignity” through virtual and in-person events hosted by participating individuals and partners around the world. 

Seeing the human

Storytelling from refugees, displaced people, and the individuals supporting them.

The plurality of knowing

How do we center local, indigenous and marginalized communities’ knowledge and lived experiences?

Innovation and learning

Creating a culture of creativity, refining and transforming concepts, strategies and practices, and sharing knowledge and experience. How do we increase effectiveness and value generation?

Co-designing education and workforce solutions with refugee and displaced communities

What problems are faced and how can solutions be assessed?

Our Pillars

We look to activate and establish communities of practice to come together to create more inclusive, generative, and sustainable spaces for systemic collaboration. 


The Migration Summit centers the perspectives and experiences of refugees, migrants and displaced persons to co-create prototypes, proposals, and recommendations to advance pathways to learning, livelihood and dignity.
