PICUM is a network of individuals and organisations supporting undocumented migrants in Europe. PICUM has two types of members: Ordinary Members (individuals) and Affiliated Members (organisations). There are 195 ordinary members who are individuals involved in humanitarian activities concerning undocumented migrants or persons that work in policy, research and simply want to contribute to the mission of PICUM.
In addition, PICUM has 162 affiliated members in 38 countries across the globe. The membership is primarily based in Europe representing 22 countries from the European Union. As a membership based NGO, PICUM provides a direct link between the grassroots level, where undocumented migrants’ experience is most visible, and the European level where policies relating to them are deliberated.
Affiliated members are organisations whose activities fully or partly relate to the situation of undocumented migrants. The membership shows a great diversity, including faith-based organisations, shelters, trade unions, international networks and humanitarian assistance providing organisations, which range in size from a larger organisation with a sizeable staff to small, grassroots organisations that work primarily on the local level.
PICUM’s affiliated members are listed below. The organisations which represent larger networks are grouped together and listed towards the bottom of the list, under the heading European and International Organizations. Soon a brief description of the organisation and their activities will be added.
