Global Coordinating Office

Global Coordinating Office


"MADE is a global networking space connecting civil society organisations and movements around the world to speak out together for migrants' rights and against abuses, violations and racism; to speak out on changing the current narrative to one where migrants and diaspora are champions and drivers of vibrant societies and human development."

Wies Maas, ICMC

Global activities and actions are coordinated by the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) with an international team based in Brussels and Geneva.

Since 2011, upon the invitation of civil society partners and consecutive government Chairs, ICMC has acted Civil Society Coordinating Office for the Global Forum on Migration and Development. Since early 2014, the coordination of GFMD civil society activities has become part of MADE.

The Global Coordinating Office organises global activities and advocacy actions, facilitates networking and information-sharing and builds connections between the regional networks and global working groups, the International Steering Committee and partners worldwide. The Global Coordinating Office also undertakes fundraising to ensure sustainability.
