Migration is fundamental to the economic and social fabric of Kerala. Migrant workers from outside the state have penetrated in almost all economic sectors in Kerala. There is, however, considerable lack of quality information about migrants and their contribution to the society, which could lead to conflicts between migrants and host communities. Such a situation is not unique to Kerala and countries across the world have accumulated experience in dealing with this important issue. CMID aims to bring in such best practices to Kerala.

- Promoting better relationship between migrants and host community through awareness creation and cultural exchange
