4th Global Mayoral Forum on Human Mobility, Migration and Development (Berlin)

The concept of this year’s Global Mayoral Forum will be “Mayors as Humanitarian and Development Actors: Preparing, Welcoming and Integrating.” Thus, Mayors from around the world are invited to share their experiences in straddling the humanitarian imperatives of reception of large numbers of new arrivals whether from conflict, natural disaster or other phenomena. Mayors will also be invited to speak on the subject of longer-term challenges of governing integration: fostering pluralism, by which recognition of the value of diversity also implies acknowledging its complexities and struggles. In this connection, they will discuss whether and if so how, migration has fostered economic growth and human development in their communities. Lastly, Mayors will be invited to explain progress through city-to-city partnerships, and the value of networks amongst cities within their countries, regions and beyond to learn about new and promising policies and practices. More information on this year’s focus will be available soon via the concept note and programme.

GFMD 10th Summit (Berlin)

The main theme of the Tenth GFMD Summit to be held in Berlin on 28-30 June 2017 will be "Towards a Global Social Contract on Migration and Development". This theme signals the imperative to address and balance the interests of migrants and their countries of origin, transit and destination within the framework of safe, regular and orderly migration. It also reflects different governance levels, addressing national, international as well as cooperative strategies and aims at developing an understanding through inclusion of all stakeholders.
