Haim Malka is a Vice President with the Metropolitan Group, where he leads the firm’s work on global challenges including migration, climate change, and countering authoritarianism. He is especially interested in how values and narratives shape identity and political debates. Prior to joining the Metropolitan Group in 2019, he spent nearly 18 years developing bipartisan solutions to complex foreign policy issues as a researcher, analyst, speaker, and author at leading Washington think tanks.
Malka has worked closely with the executive branch, Congress, numerous U.S. government agencies, foreign governments, and international organizations; has published dozens of journal articles, book chapters, and op-eds; and has testified before the U.S. Congress.
As migration levels rise, societies are facing competing narratives about immigration. Often, there is dissonance between top-down narratives from political leaders and bottom-up narratives spread through personal and media engagement. This report explores positive and negative narratives around migration in Colombia, Lebanon, Morocco, Sweden, and the United States to determine the contexts in which some stick while others fail.
