Statement of the 2011 Civil Society Days

29-30 November 2011

Geneva, Switzerland

Presented on 1 December 2011 to the Opening Plenary of States, Civil Society and Observers, Global Forum on Migration and Development 2011 by William Gois, Chair of the Civil Society Days of the 2011 GFMD.

Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, fellow migrants and colleagues,

Human mobility is happening, is unstoppable, and affects us all.  We all know as well that we need to do better at responding to this global phenomenon. When are we going to catch up with this?  Which kind of change do we want—change we manage or change we cannot?

About Us

MFA is a regional network of non-government organizations (NGOs), associations and trade unions of migrant workers, and individual advocates in Asia who are committed to protect and promote the rights and welfare of migrant workers.

It is guided by a vision of an alternative world system based on respect for human rights and dignity, social justice, and gender equity, particularly for migrant workers.
