Apply to take part in the GFMD Civil Society Program 2014
The application is now open for civil society representatives to participate in the Civil Society program of this year’s Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD), in Stockholm, Sweden on 12 – 14 May 2014.
If you would like to participate, fill in the application form in English, French or Spanish.
The GFMD Civil Society Days will take place on 12 – 13 May at the Münchenbryggeriet Conference Centre in Stockholm. A shared session with governments, known as the Common Space, will be held at the same venue on 14 May.
The GFMD Government Days will take place at the same location on 15 – 16 May.
As the first major event after the 2013 United Nations High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development (HLD), the GFMD will once again bring together more than 200 migrant and civil society leaders from all over the world. At the HLD, global civil society was struck by the enormous convergence among many governments, international organizations, and civil society groups around a set of key priorities that must urgently be addressed – including ensuring migration and migrants’ rightful place on the post-2015 agenda, protecting migrants in crisis and transit, reforming the migrant worker recruitment industry, and more. Civil society worldwide can seize the 2014 GFMD as the first global opportunity to capitalize on this convergence, drive forward civil society’s 5-year 8-point Action Plan, and urge governments to commit to further dialogue, practical cooperation and change.
The deadline for applications is 19 February!
