The Transnational Migrant Platform Europe (TMP-E) – based in Amsterdam, NL – responds to the various international, European and national developments that are impacting heavily on the daily lives of the peoples in the South and on migrant and refugee communities in Europe.
Transnational Migrant Platform Europe (TMP-E), was developed as a transnational migrant initiative and response in the context of the unprecedented global economic, financial, food and environmental crises. It was set up in 2008 as a convergence and alliance of several migrant communities from the Global South – Africa, Asia, Latin America, Morocco and Turkey as well as European and international organisations involved in solidarity, anti-racist and global justice work. TMP-E includes a diversity of migrant organisations and networks – some of whom have worked together for several years and who have developed strategic relations and partnerships in Europe and internationally, as well as in counties of origin.
TMP-E functions as a horizontal ‘network of networks’ in a democratic framework of co-responsibility. The TMP-E is jointly anchored by the main co-conveners based in Amsterdam. Activities were initiated and implemented by the co-conveners and shared among the co-conveners during regular meetings. The main lines of Its agenda for its advocacy is formulated during the TMP-E Europe wide Conferences.
