C-MISE is a city-led knowledge-exchange programme supporting European cities in sharing knowledge on city practices and policies responding to the presence of migrants with irregular status in their territory. The aims of C-MISE are to: engage cities and towns in knowledge-exchange on migrants with irregular status; disseminate C-MISE guidance materials throughout Europe; share expertise in national, European and international policy debates; and mainstream C-MISE' issue of focus within city networks focusing on migration. The short video documentary on the right explains why cities consider it important to take action in relation to irregular migrants.
C-MISE is chaired by the City of Utrecht and facilitated by researchers at the University of Oxford's Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS). Since 2017, approximately 50 cities across 18 countries engaged in C-MISE dialogues.
