Welcome to the Transnational Migrant Platform Europe (TMP-E) Archive!

It is a work in progress and – a living library of selected resources on resistances, mobilizations and victories of the struggle of Migrant and Refugee Peoples as they work together with social movements and engaged solidarity organizations in building a transnational, anti-racist and inter-sectional movement for equality of rights, peace, solidarity and justice for all.

It includes current as well as historic references and resources from co-convenors and participant organizations in the TMP-E network.

## Weaving a New Narrative on Migration and Asylum

The process of work with the PPT (2017-2020) on the Violations with Impunity of the Human Rights of Migrant and Refugee Peoples, bringing together more than 500 organizations, has generated a new narrative from the perspectives of migrant and refugee peoples which is now the basis and framework of a popular education campaign by TMP-E and other co-convening organizations.
