Description

MIGLINK is a Swedish-Mexican-Turkish Research Links consortium specialised on migration and development. MIGLINK aims to
examine the development of an incipient global governance framework for migration with a focus on the role of civil society. GFMD, initiated at the UN global dialogue High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in 2006, is the most inclusive state-led forum between governments on developing policies for international migration. Since its inception, so-called "Civil Society Days" were organized as a side event to the GFMD meetings. The consortium follows preparation, agenda2012) setting, debates and outcomes of upcoming GFMD meetings among to contextualise them in historical and geographical perspective, aiming to identify the role of civil society in global policy making through the GFMD. This is matched by examination of the parallel development of a global movement of civil society in fora outside the formal framework of the GFMD and the formation of alternative agendas for global governance on migration. The consortium links interdisciplinary knowledge on the historical development of global governance on migration with a focus on conditions for sustainable development, poverty reduction, global labour and human rights.

Dr. Stefan Rother, South Asian Studies at Freiburg University, with a long standing research trajectory in the subject area, joined the project in 2015.

The groundwork for this project was built, among other, through work in the Swedish Research Links project " (Available at: http://project.isv.liu.se/remesoproject/project.php?id=3 ), and through the academics-stakeholder conference "Labour Rights as Human Rights? (2012) (available at: http://project.isv.liu.se/remesoproject/project.php?id=83 ).
