Selfish Altruist podcast: Sophia Burton – Changing minds on Migration

As volunteers, we want to know how to change people’s minds. But the road to changing minds about migration is a challenging one so we were happy to hear from expert Sophia Burton.

As the co-founder of Migration Matters, Sophia and her team are challenging the sensationalized narratives around the so-called refugee crisis while advocating for a more inclusive, research-based conversation.

We explore the role of evidence, stories, and appealing to people’s values in advocacy work.

Balancing power while sharing stories is key, and so is countering biases with research and evidence.

With educational video series, workshops, and dialogue events, Migration Matters are bridging the gap between the public and the scholars, offering evidence-based perspectives on the pressing issue of migration.
