Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action

Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action TIGRA promotes ECONOMIC CITIZENSHIP to advance human rights and help realize a solidarity economy. That should not be the privilege of only a few.

TIGRA dreams of a hopefully not-so-distant future, where people of different nations, but especially those from developing countries like the Philippines or Bangladesh or Mexico, migrate to wherever they want because they can - not because they have to. In that future that TIGRA envisions, migration is a choice and not an economic necessity. Migrating somewhere is not something people have to do b

ecause they feel there are no opportunities for a better life for them and their families in their own countries. TIGRA works towards a vision where going from one place to another is a right that is exercised, and is seen and experienced by all as an option among many, that will lead to fulfillment, growth and learning--not just for the individual, but for their communities and countries.
