Immigration Policy | Open Philanthropy Project

We value all lives equally, and we believe that migration can dramatically improve the lives of migrants. We hope to allow more people to be able to move internationally, particularly from lower-income to higher-income countries. We see the potential humanitarian gains from such changes as massive. We see working to allow more future migration broadly, rather than for a specific group (such as high-skill workers), as a relatively neglected space among policy-oriented groups.

We do not currently have a full-time staff member dedicated to this cause. Alexander Berger leads our grantmaking in this area.

For more on why we chose immigration policy as a focus area, see our public cause report (November 2013), used in our process for selecting focus areas.
