Economic globalization has dramatically increased the rate of migration around the world. Following the events of September 11, 2001, migration was increasingly viewed through the lens of security concerns, and the human rights of migrants often suffered. At the same time, research increasingly showed the positive potential economic impacts of migration. Each year, MacArthur provides more than $5 million in grants to research institutions, nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, and intergovernmental organizations engaged in research, policy, and practice dedicated to improving the lives of migrants. MacArthur has been the largest nongovernmental donor to the Global Forum on Migration and Development, which is an annual gathering of more than 140 governments aimed at encouraging international cooperation.
