As of July 2015, the Working Group on Diaspora and Migrants in Development is coordinated by the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD UK), which is based in London, United Kingdom.
The Working Group on Diaspora and Migrants in development works on ensuring the engagement of diaspora and migrants as entrepreneurs, social investors, and policy advocates and partners in human development in particular in countries of origin and heritage.
The group builds on previous advocacy and agreements reached by civil society during past editions of the Global Forum for Migration and Development and reflected on civil society’s 5-Year 8-Point Action Plan. Find more information in their Core Members' list and Terms of Reference.
All civil society organizations working in the field of migration and diaspora or interested in the topic are welcome to join and participate in upcoming events or other activities.
