Shabaka is also able to draw on our team’s diversity and multi-lingual-ism, as staff and consultants are fluent in Arabic, Amharic, Kiswahili, French, Turkish, Russian, chiShona, Spanish, Portuguese and English.
Evidence base is critical. We document and analyse diaspora and migrant action in the development and humanitarian spaces.
