Recognizing the value that migrant populations can bring to development efforts in their countries of origin, the United Nations Member States initiated the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD). The GFMD provides a setting in which governments can discuss lessons learned, best practices, and challenges and opportunities presented by the growing nexus of migration and development, with each other and members of civil society.

To prepare the GFMD 2012 meetings, the Government of Mauritius, which will chair the process, has embarked on a consensual and collective thinking process with other governments and partners to set the thematic program, in part built on the outcomes and achievements of previous meetings. This discussion includes a status of preparation of the 2012 GFMD summit, including a discussion on the possible ideas and projects presently being contemplated that would fully integrate migration into the development framework, with a special focus on Africa.

During the last seven years, many governments in the Asia-Pacific region have been actively engaged in the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) not only as participants to the process but also as leaders driving its direction and continuity. To continue its success and to remain as relevant, the GFMD has to be as instrumental in shaping the reality on the ground as much as the global discourse on migration and development. This Bangkok discussion launches the MPI-International Organization for Migration issue brief, The Global Forum on Migration and Development: Perspectives from Asia and the Pacific, which explores the Asia-Pacific priorities for the GFMD 2014 and provides recommendations on how the GFMD can be a development-focused and results-oriented forum.

Since its founding in 1950, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Over decades of work, the urgency of helping refugees in need is undiminished, but the difficulties in providing assistance have become more interconnected and complex. Today millions of people are obliged to flee their countries because of conflict exacerbated by rapid population growth and urbanization, climate change, and water, food, and energy insecurity. The distinctions between refugees and migrants and voluntary and involuntary movements are becoming blurred, and decisions based on them are difficult to make.

This discussion on the global challenges of protecting refugees with Volker Türk, who directs UNHCR’s Division of International Protection, and Kathleen Newland, MPI’s Director of the Refugee Protection Program, was organized around three main themes: protection gaps, burden-sharing, and reducing statelessness.

More than two and a half years of violent conflict in Syria have left between one-quarter and one-third of the Syrian population displaced internally or seeking refuge abroad, with many still departing the country. UN Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees T. Alexander Aleinikoff joined Kathleen Newland, who directs MPI's refugee protection work, for a discussion on what is now considered one of the biggest humanitarian emergencies in a generation. In addition to discussing the key concerns UNHCR has identified in the Syrian crisis and the regional and international responses, Mr. Aleinikoff and Ms. Newland discussed some of UNHCR’s other priorities and areas of action, such as the Somalian refugee situation and prospects for innovation at UNHCR.

Diaspora groups are often deeply involved in efforts to reduce poverty, improve the quality of life, and promote sustainable growth in their ancestral countries across the developing world. Their self-generated efforts are attracting growing attention among policymakers. However, practice has developed faster than policy and key questions remain.

MPI and USAID have published Diasporas: New Partners in Global Development Policy, examining the development impact of diasporas in six critical areas. At this event, speakers discuss new thinking on the role of diaspora engagement in U.S. foreign and development policy.

Diaspora engagement has become a key and accepted component in the arsenal of development strategies. The question of how to effectively and efficiently harness the force of a country’s diaspora through government intervention and policy remains one that many governments and international organizations must grapple with. Diaspora interventions tend to be organic and outside the confines of government and institutional structures. MPI's edited volume, How Can Talent Abroad Induce Development at Home? Towards a Pragmatic Diaspora Agenda includes commentary from leading experts in the field. During this book launch discussion, volume editor Yevgeny Kuznetsov, a World Bank senior consultant and MPI nonresident fellow, discusses findings with Kathleen Newland, Director of MPI’s Migrants, Migration, and Development program; and Lev Freinkman, author of research in the volume and former World Bank senior economist. The discussion offers new insight into how governments and international organizations can effectively implement diaspora engagement strategies.

The International Organizations for Migration is often asked to assist stranded migrants, despite constraints in terms of resources, legal frameworks, and institutional arrangements. The Libyan crisis, which displaced nearly 800,000 migrant workers, challenged IOM to look for innovative solutions in partnership with other actors – in particular the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR.

With global mobility on the rise, the international community is finally grappling with the challenge of stranded migrants, which is one of the main agenda items for the High-level Dialogue on Migration and Development in the UN General Assembly in October 2013. Director General Swing will reflect on IOM’s long experience with stranded migrants and ways in which it is preparing proactively to address their needs.

Governments are increasingly aware of the significant socio-economic role diasporas play in the development of their homelands; yet, confusion remains about how governments should best cooperate with diaspora groups and to what extent. In its communication on the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility, the European Commission urges greater governmental support in expanding diasporas’ contribution to development, but concrete guidelines are lacking.

MPI and IOM have developed a handbook, Developing a Road Map for Engaging Diasporas in Development, designed to fill gaps in the current discourse on diasporas’ role. The launch of the handbook and panel discussion explore opportunities and challenges governments face when developing strategies to engage diaspora populations.

As of January 2013, the ongoing humanitarian crisis in and around Syria is intensifying. As winter sets in, stocks of food and fuel are dwindling. The strain on neighboring countries is testing their ability to keep borders open to Syrian refugees and international assistance is not keeping up with growing needs.

A delegation of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) visited Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, and Iraq in late November to discuss the humanitarian crisis with refugees, officials from host and donor governments, representatives of international humanitarian organizations and local nongovernmental agencies; and to get a firsthand look at the work of IRC partners and staff who are directly involved in providing assistance to the refugees and Syrians trapped in the country. The following discussion paints a vivid picture of the current state of affairs.

Arguably one of the most persistent — and neglected — humanitarian crises in the Western Hemisphere, Colombia’s ongoing conflict has resulted in the targeted persecution and displacement of over four million Colombians in the last two decades. In November 2010, a delegation of Refugee Council USA  members and a representative of the Canadian Council for Refugees visited Panama and Ecuador with the purpose to learn more about, and bring increased attention to, the complex protection and resettlement needs of Colombian refugees. In both countries, the delegation met with refugees, NGOs, government representatives, and with UNHCR staff.

This discussion examines the situation of Colombian refugees in Panama and Ecuador; their living situations; legal status; their access to employment, health care, or education; and the treatment of groups of particular concern, like Afro-Colombian refugees, unaccompanied Colombian minors, and refugee women.
