Practice Case Study

Community work approach to collective action


  • This migrant-led campaign took off quickly because the groundwork of participation and empowerment had already been laid.
  • We held training sessions and workshops for activists while the campaign was at its height, to give them the chance to put newly acquired skills and analysis into practice.
  • The campaign allowed our most experienced activists to share their skills and experience with newer participants.
  • MRCI collaborated and built alliances and solidarity with allies such as the trade union movement and stakeholders such as employers to build power for change.
  • Being clear about the change being sought, informed by a critical analysis and underpinned by the active participation of migrants impacted by the issue that change is sought on.
