Migration Diaries

‘Migration Diaries’ attempts to curate stories of migrants’ lives and worlds beyond the binaries of tragedy and resilience, through a revisting of their experiences. We hope to further contextualise these insights within broader academic, policy and popular discourses on distress migration.


Navigate migration stories, experiences, the reasons for migration and other relevant information through an interactive Map or switch to a filterable card view.

Migration Stories

We only accept stories directly from migrant workers or from researchers and practitioners that have the full consent of migrant workers who want to share their experiences with the world via this site. The aim of this website is to experiment with creating capacities for democratized narratives on migration.
