Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) in collaboration with the Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) organized a Reflection and Review Program on Building Effective Advocacy and Collaboration Strategies for Civil Society Advocates along Key Migration Corridors from 21-23 March 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The program was hosted by the National Network for Safe Migration (NNSM). Participants of the program included alumni of previous DTP national and regional training programs.
Since 2004, DTP and MFA have been working together in partnership to build the knowledge and skills of advocates and to use capacity building programs to connect advocates for migrant workers’ rights in countries of origin and destination and with the broader human rights movement, trade unions and national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and the women’s movement.
Following 14 years of regional and national training programs in countries of origin and destination, a reflection and review program was organized to explore ways in which collaboration can be built along migration corridors to enable effective action on cases and policy/law reform in countries of origin and destination.
The program aims to identify key elements for effective collaboration on advocacy between countries of origin and destination, and build case-studies on the past and current initiatives of collaboration. The program also enabled reflection on effective advocacy using different approaches for continuing collaboration between civil society advocates in countries of origin and destination.
