KIWI - Migration expertise

Independent Expertise on Migration, Integration and Asylum

The kiwi is a Chinese gooseberry imported to New Zealand by a teacher in 1904 and  exported to England in the early 50th. There the fruit was named after a New Zealand bird and further exported to Europe.  


The green fruit represents migration and integration processes in a variety of ways: it travelled over continents and was named (falsely) after its assumed origin. Plus, it was warmly welcomed by some and abandoned by others due to its singularity.   


The service provider KIWI offers international expertise on migration, integration and asylum. Services include writing studies and evaluations, giving trainings as well as offering moderations and talks.
