23 February - 23 February 2018

Add to Your Calendar

While problems related to migration are daunting, the creative solutions emerging from the United Nations inter-agency work on the issue, governments, institutions and countless facets of civil society throughout the world are equally astonishing –and need to be communicated and replicated.

This forum was conceived as an opportunity to bring governments, experts and practitioners together to debate and compare knowledge, evidence and good practices. Differences in regional dynamics and growing complexities make this forum more urgent than ever.

Debates will touch different thematic areas, including the causes of displacement, the relationship between migration and the labor market, remedies for better integration in the host countries, and the influences of radicalization. All will be examined as they cross-cut with migrant women. Recommendations will be compiled and disseminated toward greater clarity, solidarity and commitment to action.

The forum will be held in Room XI at the Palais de Nations in Geneva on 23 February from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. CET. Click here for more information and a detailed program.
