The GFMD Civil Society Days will take place on 12 – 13 October at Lütfi Kırdar – Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre in Istanbul. Then civil society participants will join governments in a shared session, known as the Common Space, at the same venue on 14 October. The GFMD Government Days will then take place at the same location on 15 – 16 October, mainly for government participants.
The 2015 GFMD Civil Society Days (CSD) will bring together once again more than 200 migrant and civil society leaders from all over the world. Observers from governments and international organisations will be invited separately by the end of June to join the civil society participants for parts of the programme.
The 2015 CSD programme will centre on assessing recent progress and impact on major civil society priorities in migration and development worldwide, and next steps. In particular, since the UN High-level Dialogue (HLD) on International Migration and Development in 2013 and the GFMD in 2014:
- What issues have moved forward, and which have stagnated or worsened? What needs to be done next?
- How does civil society look at, engage in and ensure—at national as well as global levels—the implementation and monitoring of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals that the UN General Assembly will adopt in September, just before the GFMD, in order to improve the rights, well-being and protection of migrants and communities?
The civil society programme will be pick up and take forward the issues of civil society’s 5-year 8-point plan, the outcomes from the GFMD 2014 CSD, linking with the themes that the governments have decided to focus on in their own GFMD programme. As in prior years, the civil society programme will feature plenary and break-out sessions around themes such as: labour migration, decent work and reforming migrant labour recruitment, placement and employment practices; migrant and diaspora empowerment and action; protection of migrants – men, women and children – on the move, in transit and at borders.
More details on the programme will follow soon. In the meantime, you can share your ideas for the GFMD CSD 2015 programme by sending us an e-mail or by filling the last question on the application form.
