Civil society speaks up for human rights in the Global Compact on Migration

On 8 and 9 May, the first Thematic consultation for the Global Compact on Migration took place at the United Nations Palais in Geneva, focusing on “Human Rights of all Migrants, social inclusion, cohesion, and all forms of discrimination, including racism, xenophobia and intolerance”.

New Movement Report and Scorecards

In 2016, the MADE civil society network published the first edition of the Movement Report, providing an assessment of progress on civil society’s 5-year 8-point Plan of Action in its first two years, i.e. from the 2013 UN High Level Dialogue through September 2015. Building on the input of civil society actors, MADE has now published a second edition of the Movement Report, providing a commentary on further progress through the Plan’s third year, from October 2015 through December 2016.

MADE, evaluated (twice) and moving forward

With the first three years of the Migration and Development (MADE) Civil Society Network ending in early 2017, two independent consultants conducted formal assessments of the work of the MADE programme from 2014 - 2016. The first consultant was hired by the European Commission, completing her Results Oriented Monitoring (ROM) Evaluation report in September 2016. The second consultant evaluator, retained as one of the commitments within the design of the MADE programme, completed her evaluation in March 2017. The objectives of both evaluations were to gather lessons learned and suggestions for the future of MADE from partners as well as from other stakeholders, particularly those that have worked with MADE in some capacity.
