People on the Move

People on the Move (POTM) envisions a world where people in need can safely and legally access better lives and livelihoods across borders. Our mission is to stand up and resource an emerging field dedicated to this vision, because enabling people to move for opportunity is the most powerful and neglected tool to address global income inequality.

GDI’s role

People on the Move started as a GDI research effort to complement our portfolio of initiatives across refugee livelihoods, anti-trafficking, and labor mobility. Now People on the Move is an in-house Design-stage initiative to mobilize resources and facilitate donor collaboration on a neglected issue area.
