The notion of "mainstreaming migration" has recently emerged as an innovative and coherent concept which recognizes the complex nature of migration and its interrelation with a broad spectrum of policies relating to development. It also sees migrants first and foremost as rights-bearers, rather than factors in development, recognizing that people should have the freedom to choose whether to migrate or not. Adopting a truly participative approach, the course aims to enhance understanding of the links between migration and sectoral policies and to strengthen the capacity of participating actors to enhance policy coherence through multi-stakeholder mechanisms.

Description

Description

The notion of "mainstreaming migration" has recently emerged as an innovative and coherent concept which recognizes the complex nature of migration and its interrelation with a broad spectrum of policies relating to development. It also sees migrants first and foremost as rights-bearers, rather than factors in development, recognizing that people should have the freedom to choose whether to migrate or not. Adopting a truly participative approach, the course aims to enhance understanding of the links between migration and sectoral policies and to strengthen the capacity of participating actors to enhance policy coherence through multi-stakeholder mechanisms.

Target audience

Target audience

The course is designed for key stakeholders dealing with migration and development issues: officials, policy-planners and practitioners from public institutions (including local and regional authorities) and ministries dealing with migration policies and/or development planning processes at local and national level; practitioners addressing the linkages between migration and development; representatives of workers' and employers' organizations, as well as representatives of civil society organizations (CSOs), including diaspora organizations; officials, managers and experts from international development agencies.

Objectives

Objectives

The objectives of the course are the following:

• To enhance the understanding of actors from different backgrounds, institutions, policy areas and contexts on the links between migration and sectoral policies
• To strengthen the capacity of participating actors to enhance policy coherence through multi-stakeholder mechanisms
• To support the importance of a rights based approach in the governance of migration and in mainstreaming mechanisms
• To promote an understanding of the mechanisms, opportunities and challenges related to the engagement
of migrants in development-related policy and planning, throughout the whole migration cycle
• To foster dynamics aiming to build policy coherence throughout different levels of governance, from the local to the national, informing also regional and global M&D processes and debates

Content

Content

The structure of the course will be as follows:

Plenary sessions: High-level experts from different backgrounds and representing different organisations will be invited to join morning discussions on high-priority, cross-cutting and emerging themes in the field of migration and development. This will offer a useful contextual backdrop to the more detailed discussions in the interactive sessions 

The topics that will be covered during plenary sessions are (among others):

– Emergence, development and current trends of the migration and development discourse
– Coherence/Incoherence between migration and development policies
– Migration in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and related global debates
– Why should we mainstream migration into policy planning?
– Who are the actors to be involved?
– Mainstreaming migration into development planning


Interactive sessions: Interactive sessions will be held throughout the course where further group work, analysis of projects, mutual support and identification of potential partnerships will allow for a more in-depth approach to the specific issues addressed in the sessions. These sessions will be facilitated around peer-to-peer learning, encouraging participants to develop, share and challenge ideas among themselves.
