The MMN secretariat is based in Chiang Mai and Hong Kong (hosted by the Asian Migrant Centre). The secretariat takes care of the day-to-day operations of MMN and is the central point in facilitating communication between members and other partners. We have a diverse and dedicated team committed to promoting migrants’ rights.
Asian Migrant Centre
Established in 1991, the Asian Migrant Centre (AMC) is a regional NGO based in Hong Kong. AMC carries out action oriented research on migration issues, policy and media advocacy, and capacity building for organisations working to empower, protect and promote the rights of migrants in Asia.
In 2001, AMC was the initiator in establishing MMN by bringing together over 20 project partners to carry out collaborative research to map out migration policies, issues and responses in the Mekong subregion. When MMN was formally launched in 2003, AMC agreed to host the MMN Secretariat. As a strategic partner, AMC continues to host the MMN Secretariat and implement projects in close collaboration with MMN.
