M&D Forum

To promote inclusive and multi-stakeholder consultations on the proposed thematic agenda of the GFMD 2017-2018 Co-Chairmanship of Germany and Morocco, this GFMD Migration and Development (M&D) Forum has been made available online in order to gather comments, inputs and suggestions from all Friends of the Forum (UN Member States and GFMD Observers) and other concerned stakeholders (civil society, private sector, academia, migrant and diaspora associations and others).

This online facility becomes all the more important in view of the relatively shorter period of time – i.e., only five months --  to organize the GFMD 2017 Roundtables that will take place at the Tenth GFMD Summit in Berlin on 27-30 June 2017 under the overarching theme, "Towards a Global Social Contract on Migration and Development".

The Co-Chairs wish to elicit views and contributions grounded on solid experience and expertise in managing migration challenges and maximizing its opportunities. The responses (comments, suggestions, feedback, etc.) and contributions (project documents, assessment reports, etc) received will be considered, to the extent possible, in the preparations of the GFMD 2017 Roundtable sessions and in the reflection on GFMD’s possible role and contributions to the ongoing Global Compact on Migration process.

There are three main Roundtable topics with two sessions each, or six Roundtable sessions in all. Each RT session’s preliminary conceptual framework, expected outcome and guiding questions are outlined on each page, followed by a comments section. Please indicate your answers (no more than 1,000 words) in the space provided.

For any question or clarification, please do not hesitate to contact the GFMD Support Unit at supportunit@gfmd.org. Tel: +4122 788 49 46.
