Migrationlab co-creates opportunities with and for refugees, migrants and locals to meet, interact and inspire each other in cities across Europe. We combine culture, storytelling, social design and non-formal education to improve social relationships between these communities.

The name Migrationlab refers to a multilingual open workspace both virtual and physical, that explores migration issues and documents intercultural communication with the direct participation of migrants, refugees and local communities. 

The Migrationlab Foundation/Stichting Migrationlab is active since 2014 and it was founded by  Laura M. Pana in The Hague, Netherlands, following her experiences and journey as Romanian migrant woman throughout Europe.

"Thank you so much for yesterday's evening! I love your project and the way you talked about it gave me power for my own. 
Thank you for your sparkling mind! I don't know if you had the same experience, but for me it was great to see how people would join into a project like this, it made me much braver to continue and go out there and find support!"


Marina, France 

"Une fois encore, félicitations, et merci! Je voulais te (vous) redire à quel point j'ai été profondément touchée par chacun de vos témoignages, par tous les gens présents, par l'ensemble de la soirée…Vécue par la petite expatriée que je suis comme un véritable bol d´air :) J´ai notamment tiqué lorsque tu as fait ce lien entre migration et histoire, ou plutôt "storytelling" ….cette anthropologie de l'homme qui bouge et raconte..."

Sergy, Russia

"Hi! I heard your interview on radioFM4 this morning, then read your blog, interesting experience. I'm native Russian but my parents moved to Ukraine - it was first migration experience- and after I grew up I decided to move out from Ukraine, firstly only for short periods, but afterwards  I moved permanently to Slovakia. I can add some CEE experience and Post Soviet people experience of immigration. I hope we can do this world little bit better. Thanx!"
