About the center

The Scalabrini Migration Center (SMC) is part of the Network of Centres for Migration Centers (FCMS), an organization inspired by G. B. Scalabrini's vision of migration. An advocate of his time, Scalabrini drew attention to the cultural, social and spiritual dimensions of migration and advocated for policies to promote the welfare of migrants. SMC is also a member of the Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN), which has permanent observer status in the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

In its approach to migration, SMC is committed to the following goals:

  • to encourage the interdisciplinary study of migration in Asia;
  • to contribute to the development of informed policies that will ensure respect for the rights and dignity of migrants; and
  • to promote greater solidarity with migrants and with institutions and individuals working for migrants' welfare.
