Research for Social Good

Aiming to bridge policy, advocacy, and on-ground operations, Mundo Translated is a fully independent and interdisciplinary Consultancy & Research Platform devoted to influence tangible change in the realms of global migration, displacement, and associated global governance processes. By fostering research that brings social justice into the work, Mundo Translated was established with the vision to contribute to the efforts in alleviating the plight of migrants and displaced persons and advancing the rights of those in mobility.

Mundo Translated works with policymakers on international, regional, national and local levels; scholars and researchers; non-governmental and community-based organizations.

We welcome collaborations with researchers, experts, advocates, and editors sharing our vision to create works that can produce social good.

Mundo Translated provides consulting and research services with new insights on global migration. Looking past the current global migration governance framework and stemming from mixed-methods & critical and reflexive thinking approaches we provide an in-depth awareness of current and emerging global trends in migration stemming from years of on-ground experience in migration advocacy, policy making, on field research, monitoring and evaluation, and on-field operations. Through research, policy analysis, advisory and technical assistance, we help organisations and researchers better understand the phenomenon, reach targeted audiences, and help them achieve sustainable methods, programs, and actions.

Our Approach

Mundo Translated provides consulting and research services with new insights on global migration. Looking past the current global migration governance framework and stemming from mixed-methods & critical and reflexive thinking approaches we provide an in-depth awareness of current and emerging global trends in migration stemming from years of on-ground experience in migration advocacy, policy making, on field research, monitoring and evaluation, and on-field operations. Through research, policy analysis, advisory and technical assistance, we help organisations and researchers, and decision-makers better understand the phenomenon, reach targeted audiences, and help them achieve sustainable methods, programs, and actions.

Our analysis is focused on bridging the perspectives of policy makers, practitioners, advocates, whilst aiming for inclusion of the voices of migrants, refugees and IDPs as much as possible, to advance solutions that can affect real change.

Balancing technical rigour in the design and execution of our services with conscious awareness of our position in studying and analysing global migration & its associated processes, Mundo Translated always uses a critical and reflexive approach to denote our awareness of the individual positions of our researchers and consultants in executing work that can have a high impact and also influence society, media, and migrant and refugee policies.

Accordingly, we aim to ensure none of the findings put migrant, refugee, IDPs collaborators at risk, include fully credited voices of migrants and refugees, and ultimately not publish or submit research or work that does benefit migrants, refugees or IDPs as a whole.

To balance Mundo Translated vision to pursue work that can produce social good and its ethical approach, all research and services requests are assessed individually by careful analysis of its goal and intended use. We especially welcome research requests where the design can include migrant and refugee voices and the findings will be used to promote rights-based policy changes and expand the knowledge base on the detrimental effects of draconian migration policies.
